Victorian Side Chair - Red Floral Toile

Here is a wonderful restoration of a very old Victorian chair.

As received:





Note that this chair has beautiful turned walnut legs on original casters which were hidden with a skirt.



The chair frame and original webbing/springs needed a little bit of attention, but they were in overall good shape.

We changed the style of the arm covers a little bit, and eliminated the skirt. What a gorgeous chair! I'm in love with this one. It's such a fun piece now. The fabric is a printed red cotton similar to a French toile. It was no surprise to see that the fabric is actually from France.
