Domestitchery – Stitched Images of Chairs

William Kentridge's "Porter with Chairs"

Domestitchery is normally where we take a look at how talented people make ordinary domestic items extraordinary through creative needlework, but today we’re looking at how talented people use creative needle work to make stitchery of extraordinary domestic items.  Well, chairs anyway.

William Kentridge’s “Porter with Chairs” from his Porter Series; tapestry weave with embroidery: mohair, acrylic, and polyester.

More of the series can be seen in sokref1’s flickr.

Creativechick’s Martha’s chair is hand-painted fiber embellished with embroidery and beads.

How about some stitching on porcelain?

I found so many great needleworks of chairs that I will share more in the future.  You can count on it.
