Green armchair with Melin Tregwynt cushion

A green vinyl armchair with a new seat cushion in Melin Tregwynt wool

This chair came in for a new seat cushion and to mend a tear on the right arm. We tried to insert an invisible patch but the vinyl was too old and hard so it looked like a big angry scar and certainly wouldn't do. I decided I'd have a go at using the vinyl from the existing cushion to reupholster the arm. As the vinyl was pretty hard I only just managed it, and getting the upholstery nails back in the same holes in both the vinyl and the frame took AGES. But it worked in the end - very satisfying.

The cushion is a great addition too eh? Something about the Welsh wool works very well with old leather/vinyl.

This was a commission.
