Oval Back Arm Chair - Blue Micro Suede

This is a well made older (but not terribly old) sprung-seat chair in need of new upholstery. I didn't get a before photo, and this was done almost a year ago, so I don't recall what the previous fabric was. Maybe red? I believe we refinished the frame as well.

Here is the chair with the seat springs re-tied on new webbing.

Sofa - Red Vinyl

This white leather sofa had a number of problems. Pet damage, staining, and severely deformed pillows. New leather was outside the budget for this sofa, so our client chose a rich red vinyl.

Carved Italian Arm Chair - Modern Geometric Print

This was a very nice Italian arm chair. The stuffing had completely disintegrated, and it was in desperate need of new upholstery. The original cover was a bright red velvet.

Before:

Note how all the tufting on the back has sagged and become baggy.

The back was not especially well finished.

This was the condition of the old foam padding.

P6250176

You could just crumble it in your hands like dry cake.

P6250177

Here is the frame all stripped down (all the foam had to be replaced, and the client wanted to tufting/buttons). The springs are covered in a sort of thick mat material.

Note: the green in the print shows up as more of a gold/beige, but it is light mossy green with off-white.
