Contemporary and traditional forms harmoniously unite in this original, early Georgian armchair.
Many weeks of work were spent, by our skilled craftspeople, to restore this piece. It was stripped back to its frame and damaged areas were traditionally re-glued.
It has been re-webbed, re-sprung and lashed. The springs have been hand-stitched to the fresh hessian and it has new horsehair (hand-secured with bridle ties), cotton felt and FR cotton calico. The newly hand-stitched, rolled edges have been created using natural coir fibre stuffing.
The seat and inner back have been finished in a classic Ralph Lauren ticking fabric, whilst the arms have been left uncovered. The latter allows the traditional workmanship to be displayed; this includes exposed webbing, tacks, hessian and hand-stitched rolled-edges.
The outer back of this antique Georgian chair has been given an unexpected twist by using a cheerfully-coloured, eco-friendly coffee sack.
