Our customer based in Skipton had inherited 3 lovely old chairs and footstool and wanted to keep the pieces in their modern home. They ordered samples from the website and chose 3 co-ordinating patterns from the Eleganza range and 1 from the Faremont range.
The hammock style chair above and below had a pullman style seat unit which was suspended on a metal frame and then attached to the wooden frame. The wooden frame was stripped and repolished to its original finish. The modern Eleganza Floral pattern in Blue and Chocolate creates a wonderful dramatic look.
The footstool was repolished and upholstered in the Candy Stripe from the Eleganza range and will sit well with all the chairs.

This art deco style chair has a very unusal back rest, again a wonderful piece.
The fabric chosen was from the Faremont range and was in keeping with the original fabric as seen below. The frame was stripped and repolished.
This Parker Knoll chair needed some restyling as its original covers had seen many home repairs. The cushion should extend up above the back rail and is then fixed in position at the rear.
The interiors had collapsed in both the seat and back and these were replaced. The chair was, stripped, repolished and reupholstered in the Broad stripe from the Eleganza range.
A wonderful collection of chairs, all brought together by the customers choice of fabrics. Location Skipton.
