This week at Woodford Lisa is renovating a beautiful traditionally upholstered 1930's armchair. Having taken the chair back to the first stuffing, we refreshed the wadding on the seat and gave it a new calico interlinear. This was hand stitched in place.
Natasha is restoring a pretty painted bedroom chair. There was no upholstery on this chair so we are putting on a pincushion padding. Here Natasha is applying the hessian base ready for the hair and fibre stuffing.
And here is a finished project - a traditionally stuffed drop-in seat - a first upholstery project and it was beautifully executed.
