I fell in love with this handsome and unusual pair of chairs with their twisted wood and grand shape. They had almost completely lost their upholstery. The fabric was worn, torn and in places completely gone. the underlying foam was severely deteriorated.
But with some care, a slick of varnish and a quick sand on the worn wood, we were able to get them smart enough to recover with a stunning silk taffeta stripe.
Here you can see the job half done.
The stripe in the silk picks up the carving that extends throughout the arms, legs and back.
They just look wonderful now! As the area was small, it was possible to use a very expensive fabric without it costing a fortune.
