Unfortunately, I have no "before" photos of this chair. It had a deteriorated vinyl in a leather-look pattern, in a similar colour.
The chair was reupholstered in genuine leather from a piece we had on hand. We were able to reuse the original tacks.
Apparently this chair was bought from an auction or a garage sale, but it originally came from the House of Commons (Parliament).
The construction of the chair was massive. Most of the pieces were 2" thick. The front feet were clad in bronze caps.
