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.
Here is another example of a completed reupholstery job. A neatly designed oak occasional chair with some wear and patina. We reupholstered as selected by our customer in a peach patterned linen with a coordinating braid.
The chair owner is shipping the chair to Wales.

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.

It’s difficult with blue, it can look cold. This matching pair of probably 1950s occasional chairs look tasteful in a french blue, certainly not even cool. An inviting smart and stylish pair of chairs. Indeed this is Ross Aquaclean fabric a fabric you can clean with just water.
