A traditional take on upholstery

My client wanted their much-loved carved arm chair brought back to life using traditional methods and materials.  So it was a great pleasure to work on the piece which included refreshing and reviving the beautiful carved wooden frame.

Traditional techniques use skills developed in the 1700s coupled with materials used for a century or more.  The pictures show the finished piece together with some shots of the work in progress including coir stuffing of the seat and hair-mix stuffing of the inside back.

The result: traditional comfort, locally restored, proudly refurbished
