Featherston Makeover

featherston dining chair repair

A daunting project for any upholsterer, but John (of Modern & Antique Furniture Upholstery) rose to the challenge of restoring a mass of chewed-over, shredded fibres back to a fantastic Featherston Dining Chair (the 1953 A310H, to be exact).

The chair was one of Paul’s finds, neglected in a shed while awaiting the Cinderella treatment, but now earning ‘favourite reading chair’ status in the Graffin collection.

      Yes Greg, a total Lazarus. The ‘hole’ is in the structure of the chair, sometimes upholstered over, but more comfortable having that open space back there!
