Spruce Upholstery

April 2, 2008

I feel like I discovered a gold mine today when I found Spruce Upholstery, I love what owners Amanda Brown and Lizzie Joyce in Austin, Texas can do to the common chair. Just look at these beauties.

Spruce Upholstery

They upholster a wide variety of chairs with ridiculously pretty fabrics and the prices are so affordable for what you’re getting. I think these ladies and their business will really take off once they get some blog exposure, I mean who wouldn’t love a custom Amy Butler chair? I love the eye that they have for mixing fabric as well, what talent!

They even do custom work over the phone or via email and they have a small selection in their etsy store.

    But another comment… I think their etsy store doesn’t reflect their work :-(

    Thanks for all the great comments! We’re working furiously to get some more items on our Etsy store. Check back in a week or so–we’re working on some pieces we’re really excited about that will be ready soon!

    Amanda and Lizzie,your designs bring one back to an era gone by but with a modern sophisticated appeal..not just for our stylish Austinites but to the eye of the most discriminating world traveler…you two young women have hit on a new concept for the “Old Tired Typical Vintage”…Well Done..look forward to seeing more of your work…

    Amy Butler has a lovely range of fabric, but what use wold it be if there weren’t people like this that use the fabric in ways like this!
    I love every single chair!!

    Their work is beautiful. Just a question – how would they do custom work via phone/email? Give you the idea and you get it done locally?

  • Reply boltandfrolic April 3, 2008 at 5:33 pm

    It’s neat to see Amy’s prints on the various forms of the furniture. They did a nice job all around. Lovely photos and styling! (That’s an art unto itself)

    I absolutely adore these peices! Stylish and artistic. Well done ladies.

    I’m the lucky one who bought the second chair (the one with the hourglass frame and the blue bolster). I love it. I bought it to go in a cabin, but now that it’s in my apartment, I might have to keep it here.

    Beautiful! I love Amy’s fabrics for upholstery. The cotton is heavyweight and soft, really lovely for the job. For more inspiration, you can check out the chairs I recovered with Amy Butler Kashmir fabric:
