American rocking chair

A (1940's?) American rocking chair in fabric supplied by the customer.

This came to me in pieces and I was very close to just saying 'no', but the customer told me how they'd had it for many years and how much it meant to the family so I agreed to have a go at it. I took it apart and glued it back together, fixed up the inner rails so they could take the upholstery webbing and by the time I'd fully reupholstered it, I'd come to understand why they liked it...

It's quite nice innit?

This was a commission.
