What’s Your ‘Uphol-Story’?

What's Your Uphol-story? Join creative upholstery makers in this new video series!

Call for Makers

Living Home Furniture’s 2016 ‘Uphol-Stories’ video series is looking for a few creative upholstery makers who would like to share their ‘uphol-story’ as we work on your project together on video. You get to learn upholstery hands-on, and everyone else gets to see what’s possible.

How it Works:

We schedule a one day (or less) 1-on-1 workshop to film the process beginning to end & convert it to time-lapse video. You share your story in a couple of short interviews before and after (what’s your chair’s history? and what will you discover as you bring your vision to life today?). It all gets distilled down to a short, day-in-the-life video.

a simple chair + your creative vision = a maker’s story!

Ready to jump in? If you’d like to have your project considered, contact Carla. I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

Check out @uphol_stories on Instagram to see some stories in progress.

Interested in the back-story? Read my recent post about my vision for the future of our furniture choices. It all begins with makers like you, so let’s get creative, stay healthy and do away with the waste!

About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
