Mahogany Carver Chair

A mahogany dining chair covered in William Morris fabric by Liberty.

This chair is actually covered in one of the customer's old curtains. The fabric is far from upholstery weight but I really don't think it matters on an over-stuffed chair because after re-upholstery it's drum-tight and nothing's going to give. By the time the fabric wears out (10-15 years?) they'll be looking forward to something new anyway, and the upholstery should last 50 years so the next job will be cheap.

I 'm not sure how old the chair is, it's hard to identify (if anyone knows, please leave a comment), but it really suits this fabric don't you think?

This was a commission.
