Now I can imagine, people either love or hate this idea but I have to say I rather like it. Pamela Bell, a former partner in Kate Spade, let her three kids run riot on her sofa with fabric markers and this is the end result.
It could be a great option if your kids have 'accidentally' drawn on the sofa too!
Inspired by Mrs Bell, Judy and her daughter Jane Aldridge set to work on this chair, which is perhaps a more liveable option. I think it would be such a nice memento to have of your children, or perhaps even visiting guests?
This one still looks funky, but I have to say I think it works better with a more defined, classical frame.
