Massive Wing Chair

Hi ,

I just thought I will share something new here – Just started new project – a massive Wing chair which needs new life  .. It   didn`t look bad  apart  from wobbly frame , but when I started stripping down old fabric … this is what I discovered !  Check out for new pictures soon !

At this stage I thought that it will be an quite easy fix – clean few joints and make it solid ….

..then I`ve found this…so I continue ….

..and end up taking whole frame apart ! … as you can see I`ve managed to put it back together ;)

After waiting two days for glue to dry  I started building all interiors …

Victorian set – Chaise Lounge and chairs

Hi all ,

Victorian set : Chaise Lounge and chairs which needs new ” life”…

Complete makeover again  . When I first arrive at the client place to examine  the condition of the set I`ve to say it wasn`t looking that bad.. I knew it was something wrong with it but could not tell for sure what …but when I deliver  the set  back to the workshop and have started stripping old fabric off…ahhhh, what a mess!!! It was quite big re-upholstery project as I have to start from the frame ..and even frames has to sorted before upholstery . All the traditional upholstery methods has been used here as you can see on the pictures .

Do you like it guys ??  I do  !!  ;)  actually I really love this set now – it is a mixture of tradition and modern look !

Thanks

Lovely Curved French Sofa – full restoration

Hi there ,

It`s been a while when I was posting here ..sorry for that . Now I`m back with really lovely French sofa with curved back – a really amazing find by one of my clients.

This is one of these project when  you think everything looks like it is in quite good nick ..unless you strip down old fabric..All the joints has been loose which means the whole interiors has to be striped down to the frame to make repairs possible . Well, it has to be done properly.. After sorting out problems with the joints  I`ve re -build all interiors in traditional way and recover it in Manuel Canovas Fabric..

Thx
