Small turn of century armchair

Turn Of Century Armchair

A classicly shaped small turn of century armchair. Fully restored and upholstered in Linwood Omega patterned velvet. Selected by our client now safely delivered to their home in Darlington.

I have seen a number of this style of chairs in auction houses recently. They are usually in extremely bad condition, particularly the frame and springs. This example was in good order when we first started the restoration.

Bent out of shape, creaky, broken frames with popping-out springs etc can be restored – but best buy a structurally sturdy version. Cost at an auction is at an amazingly low price currently, £200- 500 each. Restored, an equivalent value will be in the region of £2000 – 5000 each. And totally unique.

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.
