Restored Pair of French Leather Club Chairs

Antique Pair of French Leather Club Chairs from the 1920's Extensively Restored

Restored Pair of French Leather Club Chairs
This particular pair of original French leather club chairs are the classic definition of; you can’t tell a book by its cover. By that I mean, everything under the skin of that scruffy 90-year old French leather, has been painstakingly restored in a true old fashion manner, where we still hand-tie coil springs in 8-different directions, hand-cut wood corner blocks to reinforce the frame, glue a heavy fabric backing to the original leather covering, so that it will never crack and separate, only use horsehair for padding, real down feathers for seat cushion and just all your basic old-school techniques. What you end up with, is an externally original leather French leather club chair, that will be as comfortable as is conceivably possible and last for generations to come and that is what 80-hours of labor will do for you. The seat cushions are covered in a pure wool fabric, although originally, it might have been a velvet? We stock on average 75-original French leather club chairs and as they are restored.
