Dr. Romanelli's RX Collection Turns Old Fabric Into New Style

‘Something from nothing’ appears to be a safe motto for any fashion connoisseur. It seems these days, turning old stuff into new hits keeps getting hotter.

Dr. Romanelli’s RX Collection keeps with his magnificent style while using old fabric (a favourite of his) to reupholster furniture. The cut up material comes together to create an original surface for retro-style chairs (not the typical LA-Z Boy we see everywhere).

Dr. Romanelli was never one to stick to the norm and the RX Collection’s creative and enjoyable designs do the trick.

It probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to gather up a group of people, sit them on these bad boys, and listen to a Dr. Romanelli lecture on recycling! (kidding…maybe) Stats for Vintage Fashion Chairs Trending: Older & Chilly
