1920's Tub Chairs in Sanderson Wool
A pair of 1920's oak tub chairs reupholstered in Sanderson Woodford Check Sage.
I was determined to cover the backs in a single piece of fabric so that the checks weren't interrupted (you're supposed to do tub chairs in 3 pieces) and after a couple of attempts I worked out how to do it. I then had to match the seat up - not easy when working with a pre-stitched front skirt. It took a while...
I love making pairs of identical chairs - you have to complete each stage to both chairs before moving on, so you have two inside backs, then two seats, then two outside backs, etc - it seems to take ages and then suddenly you've done two jobs instead of one.
Can't be bad.
This was a commission.
