The treasures you can pick up on the side of the road!!!!!! all you need is a little vision of what could be. This client found this chair during a council clean up and loved the shape. Once the fabric was picked – gorgeous velvet by Warwick, it was time to get to work.

Putting in new webbing
Rusty Springs

All the old layers were taken off, as well as the springs, as they were rusty and out of alignment.

The legs were stripped of old paint and polish  then it was time to put in new webbing, springs, hessian and padding and finally the fabric.

The Old but Most Comfortable lounge Chair

Ok we all have that chair that everybody in the family fights over – sometimes you are lucky and manage to get to it but after a while it more than looks a little lived in – Yep time for a revamp………..

This chair is an original Artifort Lounge chair and was covered in a brown, beige stripe wool – time for a change.

First off what material????? – in keeping with the original it had to be a wool – the client chose a fantastic wool fabric from Instyle – design ‘Mammoth’, colour ‘Decision’.

 

The Artifort Lounge chair has to be one of the most comfortable chairs there is and was a joy to recover.

 

Working with a top quality fabric makes all the difference.photo
