The couple called us in to look at their suite. The covers had become tired and needed to be replaced, along with the seat foam. When they bought the suite some years ago from a local manufacturer they opted for 2 different style chairs, you can see the difference from the two images below. They preferred the wing style chair and the slight difference in sizes meant that the non-winged version could not fit in the window position.
We offered the solution of making a new frame, copying the original when it was stripped in the workshop. Below shows the frame of the winged chair waiting to go to the frame makers.
The couple chose a terracotta boucle effect chenille to complement other furnishings in the room. The bun feet were repolished as over the years the colours no longer matched and had become dull.
