These were two vintage/retro chairs. They were pretty dirty and in horrible shape, but they had the potential to be really great chairs. Apparently the client's wife had been hoping he would throw them away, but I'll bet she liked the final results.
Apparently they must have goofed at the factory because there was a new, unused yellow cover in the same fabric under one of the two chairs.
The foam that was left in the chair had completely disintegrated into crumbling dust.
The chair frames are actually made from moulded fibreglass.
The chrome stands also needed to be cleaned and polished. Here's a before/after showing the difference!
The finished photos are shown without the little adjustable feet, because Pierre had to acid-soak them to remove the rust.
What a difference!
