Above Sophie has used a more vibrant stripe on the bottom edges of the chair in cream, red, turquoise, green and orange striped material (named Basketball) along with a more muted fabric on the back of the chair in pink, green, beige, green, turquoise stripes named Dressage.

These statement stripes complement the traditional floral bird design fabric. The end result – a timeless upcycled recover!

What a Stunning Victorian Chesterfield!

Revamped in Deckchairstripes Interior Stripe Fabric !
Kate from the Original Chair Company has sent us some photographs of an original Victorian Chesterfield c. 1880 with horsehair stuffing and sprung throughout.

Before: in need of a little TLC!
Before: in need of a little TLC!

She tells us that It arrived in a very sorry state, dusty, sunken seat and generally unloved. The upholstery was requiring restoration but the legs were in good condition with the original brass casters.

We have had a few customers recovering these sofas in our fabrics and the results are spectacular – please see our Gallery pics for more examples.

This one has been recovered in our Karting Pink Interior Stripe Fabric, piped exactly as the original and all the stripes beautifully aligned.  We think that it looks stunning!
