The material on these chairs was a pale pink moire silk. Unfortunately, after over 30 years, they were definitely showing their age. This is beautiful furniture and I had no hesitation when deciding whether or not to spend the money to re-upholster.
It was a brilliant decision. Margaret (owner) took the time and really helped me make a good choice regarding the fabric. The actual work on the chairs is wonderful. All the piping involved makes the job very detailed , time-consuming and unforgiving of any errors. Her craftsmen completely re-did the cushions at my request as I wanted a box design for a new look. All in all, this was well worth the time involved and one can immediately see the value in the money spent. Well done everyone.
