I interviewed the coolest human ever for the Nov/Dec issue of R-Home magazine. Haleh Pedram is an upholsterer working in Oregon Hill. I’m still digging around for a copy of the piece, so for now, I’ll leave you with this quick excerpt and a link to Haleh’s Facebook page.
Haleh Pedram upholstered her first chair — in lime green fake fur — when she was in high school, but it would be another decade before she enrolled in her first upholstery class. Today, the Iranian-born Austin, Texas transplant has made a home and a name for herself in Richmond, where she owns Haley Pedram’s Upholstery and Ideas in Oregon Hill.
