Wing Chair

This wing chair, a fireside wing-back chair, is a turn of the century classic. The inside back panel you can see is a coordinating pattern fabric. The fabric is the original fabric of the chair our customer wanted to retain as it is a reminder of her late husband who loved the chair.

Linwood omega velvet fabric is what we chose to compliment the original fabric. The customer is delighted with the result and so are we – it looks just lovely.

Before and After

A Before and After Chair

The shape of this chair is adorable anyway, covered in newspaper it would still look good :). Here we have restored and reupholstered in a modern velvet with a contrasting back panel. Its something I would have not thought of. Our customer did and it looks great and we made a bespoke unique chair.

Orange peel chair

Orange Peel Chair

The original concept of this chair was to emulate the organic shape of falling orange peel. The shape of the finished chair is beautiful and the comfort surpasses the appearance.

I must say, I have never seen one in real life before. Reupholstering it was a bit of a puzzle as the shape and curve of the one curved cushion were, let’s say not traditional. But as you can see we did restore this lovely chair in the customers chosen fabric over the original vinyl. A good move as it now looks and feels much softer. A fine artwork that is also a chair – lovely.
