As we wrote in our blog on 14 December 2012, this week we were given the opportunity to re-upholster a 1950's flute backed three piece suite in a 'Linwood' chenille fabric. It is a stunning and rare piece of furniture and we were delighted to restore it to its former glory. Furniture of this kind is becoming rarer and rarer.
We also replaced existing seat cushion interiors with best quality flame retardant 'Reflex' interiors, which carry a ten year guarantee. They were also wrapped in a secondary casing, comprising Dacron and stockinette, to prolong cushion life. All other interiors (i.e. seats, backs, arms and wings) were sympathetically restored, as discussed, to ensure a first-class authentic finish.
Our customer loved it and was delighted that it complemented the suite we re-upholstered for her just before Christmas so beautifully.
