Here are some examples of cushions and chairs that I have made in the past that have incorporated vintage tapestry, needlepoint or cross stitch.
I love the texture and pixelated quality of tapestries, and they are very durable and hardwearing. But also they are pieces of art that have taken hours of skill and passion to create.
I have to confess that I don't do the cross stitch myself, I buy them already made, but I look out for interesting ones that have been well made and that have a good colour combination, and then I use my skill to transform them into an attractive piece with colourful piping and backing fabric.
They tend to fly out of the door, so if you are after one for yourself, or for a present, send me an email and let me know what you're after, and I'll make one especially for you.
