|Andrea Mihalik's creations infuse the sustainable construction and ornate details of salvaged vintage furniture with the unconventional modernity of imaginative, sometimes "wild" fabrics and textiles. Resident artist and owner of Wild Chairy Studio, Andrea's hand-crafted pieces combine the nostalgia of old world stateliness with the bold whimsy of contemporary upholsteries, resulting in usable art that's unexpected and unique.|
Wild Chairy creates one-of-a-kind pieces of functional art using old world techniques and only the finest materials that are earth friendly. Each piece is done by hand using coil springs, horse hair, Italian twine and organic cotton to breathe new life into these recycled vintage treasures.
Andrea's adept use of organic and "green" materials has allowed her creations to be described as "funky and refreshing" and "delightfully workable examples of stylish and wonderfully conscientious, sustainable decor."
A graduate of Tyler School of Art and former award-winning photojournalist for the Philadelphia Daily News, Andrea's natural instincts for visual composition, artistic curiosity and world travels inform the details of every piece she creates.
