Napoleon II was originally worked in bold - bright colors - typical of the era.

We chose to reproduce the actual - worn shades of this needlepoint seat faded from 200 years of use - for the kits.

Seventeen different Colors are used in this Historical Needlepoint Chair Seat Cover Kit. The yellow outline was originally stitched with silk. The now pistachio background was a bright shocking chartreuse and the red much louder. The background color may be changed to navy - black or wine - etc. - depending on personal preferences.

We add four inches of extra canvas around the design to fit this fantastic reproduction to any size chair - cushion or pillow. The needlepoint pillow kits come in two color combinations now - the one seen on this page and the black with brighter scroll colors. Also available as canvases only.
