Before & after: Sprung dining chair

This beautiful dining chair had had a piece of fabric hastily throw over layers of cheap and inappropriate stuffing when I first saw it in a antiques shop.

It has now been traditionally reupholstered from the platform up with:

  • webbing
  • springs
  • hessian
  • fibre
  • stitching
  • animal hair
  • calico
  • wadding

The top fabric is designed by Clarissa Hulse for Harlequin and the trim is from Houles. You can really see how the whole shape of the chair has been transformed with proper upholstery.
