The photograph on the left shows the chair more or less as it was provided. It had been partly re-upholstered some 10 years ago and then abandoned. The old covers are shown draped over the upholstery and they were used as a template.
The chair had some of the re-upholstered areas improved and then it was recovered. The re-covering was done in a traditional manner with tacks and quite a lot had to be hand stitched. Finally the decorative cord was then stitched, again by hand, to the edges of the seat covering.
