Armchair in Linen

A 1980's High-Wycombe armchair in Tinsmith's Lichen Linen.

As any upholsterer will know, linen is a very unforgiving fabric to work with, it shows any bumps and almost highlights any hand stitching. Nevertheless I was happy with this chair. The wings had to be entirely pre-stitched by machine and slid on - something like a loose cover that is anything but loose. Each wing/arm took five or more attempts, but once they were done the job was all but finished. Thankfully it was a feather cushion, nice and easy.

This was a commission.

(Further apologies for the phone photography, I now have my camera back so things should improve).
