The restoration of upholstered furniture is another discipline undertaken.
The emphasis here is the use of traditional upholstery techniques and materials.
In this area we have the opportunity of bringing antiques into a contemporary setting as the choice of top cover is not detrimental to the historical element of the chair.
The upholstery discipline also encompasses the crafts of caning and rushing.
The caning on chairs is very susceptible to drying out and becomes very brittle. Repairing and keeping the original cane is possible especially if the chair is of importance. For the chair to become usable then replacing the cane would be required.
