Nothing wrong with the ‘old style red vinyl seating’ but this is rather refreshing – our customer had an upmarket vision for her pub and it looks lovely – who’d want to go home!

Victorian nursing chair – pheasant pattern

These occasional antique chairs originally designed as a nursing chair work as a  lovely feature and occasional seating.

Our customer chose the distinctive pheasant fabric that I think really changes the look to a modern classic.

A clever combination!

Traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric.

We often talk with customers who want to update or change the fabric on a chair or sofa.

The hurdle often can be the price. ¬†It costs more to reupholster say a Next Interiors or Laura Ashley chair than it does to buy a new one. ¬†The great thing about the likes of¬†Next Interiors or Laura Ashley is that they are ‘on-trend’ and the fabrics used are very lovely to look at. ¬†The negative is that they are made to a price and probably mass produced in China or India – nothing wrong with that as it gives us a great deal – but they are made to a price and engineered to last just a few years with average use.

For value for money and a piece of furniture that will last much longer your better off buying an older quality chair and investing in a restoration of your design.

Here is an example of a fairly standard traditional wingback chair restored and updated with an ‘on-trend’ fabric. ¬†Costs a bit more, take a little more time to instigate but made to your style using British craftsmen and quality fabrics. ¬†There is no other like it!

Cintique chairs restored including wood frame

Cintique restoration specialists.
Cintique have been designing and manufacturing high quality, comfortable chairs and sofas since 1908.

We are delighted to deliver back to our customer this lovely pair of Cintique chairs that were restored and reupholstered as per the customer specification.

The frame was worn and scratched after some 40 years of use so the customer decided on a full re-varnish of the frames in addition to a full reupholstery restoration- the detailed result below.
