Before and After of an 80 year old Art Deco Reading Chair

We rebuilt this chair keeping and reusing nothing but the heavy frame.  We discarded all old worn out fabric, old dirty paddings and old springs.  Next we strengthened the frame, refinished the show wood, installed new springs, padding and reupholstered it in one of our 9,000 + fabrics chosen by our customer.  Our customer told us that he would read to his son, while the son sat on the arm when he was young.  The father intends to pass the chair on to that now grown son.
