Small Armchair in Bute Wool

A 1980's armchair of no real quality that a customer told me she really loved. Now covered in Bute tweed and looking comparatively fantastic.

Fabric of this quality makes everything look good. It's great how it moulds around the arms and edges.

Many customers who come to my workshop are discouraged  by the cost of re-upholstery and often I advise against it if the item is not high quality to begin with. But when something is really loved or has other sentimental value, it's well worthwhile. How else would you get a small armchair covered in such great fabric for under £200?

This was a commission.
