Wheathills Restore Antique Furniture
For Dealing With Dickinson - Page 3

Re upholstering antique chair Now that the chair frames are complete, Nigel discusses the options available to the team with John the Upholsterer.
It was decided that the best plan of action was to conserve as much of the original seat as possible, re-sew and plump up each seat.
Traditionally the seats would have had a sewn edge, however, it became apparent that previous restorers had applied a wooden side to the seat to replicate a hand-sewn edging.
It was decided by the team due to the restrictions of cost and limited time, to refit the existing pads to the wooden sides.

antique chairs reupholstered to calico stage This is a beatiful set of chairs and is now in excellent condition, fit to grace any high quality Antiques Fair. The chairs are in the calico stage in readiness for their final fabric .
"Thank you for your excellent work carried out on the Antiques selected for my forthcoming BBC television programme. The restoration was sympathetic and I was very pleased with the results."
