Leather Dining Chairs

These dining chairs were reupholstered in white grained leather as requested by the customer. Previously upholstered in the cloth – see the original image below. We use only the finest Scottish leather, it looks amazing, feels fantastic and smells really lovely. The quality of these hides is way better than most manufactured leather furniture. The leather is 4mm thick so will take generations of use. They were boardroom chairs owned by the customer. We transformed into white for the dining room.

At first glance, you may be forgiven for thinking this is just an old dated dining chair. Look at the frame, particularly the curved and jointed front curve of the arms, the sheen of the varnish. This is a quality designer chair. Reupholstered in a high-grade Scottish leather it took two hides to complete the set of six. Now an upgraded design piece that will sit well in a modern or contemporary home.

Victorian Chair In Velvet Gold

Reupholstered for your customer some 15 years ago in a chintz cotton fabric this chair looked more suited to sit in a conservatory or by a french window. It was destined for our customer’s newly renovated Victorian bedroom so our customer selected a Linwood Velvet in Gold Sand. I wish I had a photograph of the chair before as the difference is quite amazing. I’d hardly recognise the chair.

This is a rare example of a very high-quality chair, the suggestion that it is very high quality when it was made is the sprung arms. Yes, actual springs are set into the top of each arm and tied-in then covered with a heavy wadding. Tricky to do but, as always, our pleasure resurrecting a quality classic like this for many more years use.
