ReBorn Chairs

We have two chairs that are from a family cottage with an early age of approximately 60 years ago. The truth is that the cottage and said chairs belonged to Richards former in-laws, and had been in his house for many years.
Thankfully his in-laws love me (as I do them) and they were thrilled to see the transformation of the chairs when I restored them. The chairs have incredible bones and graceful lines, with sturdy cane construction that is lined and cracked perfectly for the stain to penetrate in to.
Lightly sanded and generously stained cane brought out the beauty of the natural patina of the wood. Vintage inspired damask fabric in tone-on-tone chocolate brown brings back the charm to these solid built chairs.
New look, new home, new traditions as we have wine by the fireplace together.

Ta-Da !! Sixty years new.
