My client wanted a set of dining chairs for her dining room, but with a brand new set working out very costly, she really wanted an upcycled set to save on costs. We found and sourced a set of six antique chairs for her locally which we completely stripped of the old upholstery, then sanded, primed and painted the frames with three to four coats of Farrow and Ball Off Black eggshell. We resprung the seats and completely reupholstered the chairs using traditional upholstery techniques. The fabric is a stunning shimmer velvet from Anna Hayman Designs and looks fabulous with the newly painted chair frames! My client now has a completely unique and relatively inexpensive set of dining chairs. If you have
something you would like to give a makeover to, or would like something sourcing then please get in touch!
