  • Octopus Armchair - Conner

    February 24, 2011 by Britex Fabrics

    It is ocean madness week! Conner sent us a photograph of an armchair that he reupholstered in Britex Fabric home decorating cotton. We love the eight-armed octopus in the center of the back. To make this even more amazing, this is Conner’s first reupholstering project. This spectacular fabric is found on our 2nd floor.
    “I'd like to be under the sea
    In an octopus' garden in the shade
    He'd let us in, knows where we've been
    In his octopus' garden in the shade
    We would be warm below the storm
    In our little hideaway beneath the waves
    Resting our head on the sea bed
    In an octopus' garden near a cave”
