Upcycled Military Chairs

Sometimes it’s so hard to find gifts for the special people in your life. Especially if it’s to celebrate a monumental occasion like retirement. We were approached by a couple back in early 2018 about the potential of recovering two wingback chairs in Military uniforms. Her husband was currently in the Army, but would retire that summer. What an amazing way to commemorate such a career.


We were really excited to be given the opportunity to work on such a creative project. In the 30 years of Sewline, we haven’t had the honor to do such a request. I have definitely seen chairs like these floating around Pinterest, it’s always fun when customers come, it would be such a great inspiration. The best part is that these chairs are very adaptable for uniform, whether it represents the RCMP, Paramedic or maybe your grandfathers go to suit. These chairs are very popular in the UK, and they are making their way to Medicine Hat. What a perfect way to create such a memorable conversation piece for your home or office.


Why leave your retired uniform in the back of a closet, when it can be made into the main statement piece. Plus, being able to upcycle an old chair in the process as well as having a cozy place to enjoy a good book or coffee.
