The “De-constructed”Vintage Wing-Back Chair
Already making the front pages in U.S. glossy magazines & a very popular signature statement in fashionable New York Loft Apartment & Warehouse conversions – these interior decorator’s dreams have now arrived in Welwyn Garden City Hertfordshire.
RECOVER Team turn these: into these:
Under the supervision of our master upholsterer Kamil, over several sessions & a couple of months, the Team selected a stunning combination of high end designer fabrics & created something very special indeed – here is a visual account:
Legs removed & frame stripped all the way down to bare wood, sanded then stained ready for the next step.
Reclaimed Hessian and fire retardant foam (multiple layers to create a firm, lush & extra padded finish) finally all wrapped in soft Dacron in preparation for the cover.
A selection of amazing reclaimed designer fabrics all stitched together to make patchwork covers – starting with the arms & wings – prior to webbing & making ready the seat & back sections.
Receiving vigorous testing & quality control….
Shown from different angles to demonstrate what we mean by “de-constructed”.
This one caused quite a stir & was sold prior to completion to Andrea who came along a few times to watch its progress – Recover are very happy to announce that we are working on others all the time to try and keep up with demand.
