my name is Ginger Burnett
and I’m the owner and designer for Sitting Pretty Fab!
I started designing these eclectic chair because they made me happy! I wasn’t sure if anyone else would like them but I felt the need to share them. And once I did, I quickly realized others out there liked them too! And thus Sitting Pretty Fab was born!
To me, one of the most powerful tools in home decor is the fabric! Gorgeous textiles have the power to set a mood and absolutely transform a room! Unique combinations of color. pattern, design and texture are the cornerstones of defining personal style for the home.
Growing up, my parents were antique dealers, and my Mom was also an accomplished seamstress. I spent many a Saturday in fabric stores looking at textiles for whatever sewing project she was working on. She taught me how to shop quality fabrics and envision them for their intended use — a skill I’ve learned to refine over the years. I also attended my share of antique shows and flea markets, and slowly fine-tuned my eye for quality furniture construction.
So I guess it’s no surprise, I’m the creative entrepreneur of a custom-upholstery business that specializes in giving old chairs flamboyant makeovers! My eye for color and pattern mixing skills were honed, while working many years as a fashion stylist for Anthropologie. It was there, I learned the art of pattern mixing with unexpected print & color combinations. Each client was a creative challenge! I so enjoyed styling them and showing them fun ways to curate an original wardrobe -reflective of their personal style.
Then one day, I saw an amazing set of chairs on Instagram – all flaunting bold color and fun mixed prints. I was immediately smitten — the chairs just made me smile! It was then, I realized I could transfer my fashion skills from a person to a chair. So, I learned the lost of art of upholstery and began designing chairs late at night after I came home from work. I searched for art-inspired fabric prints that merged bold colors with Maximalist prints. And from there, I started creating dining chairs that rebelled against all the boring neutral prints found on furniture websites.
My goal was to offer something different — to the shopper looking to have some fun with her home decor!
Now, instead of helping people style their wardrobes, I help clients design amazing dining spaces with my creative upholstery designs. Checkout the Gallery page to see some of the dining rooms I’ve designed for. I take a lot pride in working with my clients and helping them select the best fabrics for their custom order. The experience will give you a sense of pride in knowing you helped design the prettiest piece of furniture in your home – whether its an accent chair, an entry way bench or a set of dining chairs!
