Pair of Art Deco French Leather Club Chairs

Pair Art Deco French Leather Club Chairs Properly Restored to a High Standard

Pair of Art Deco French Leather Club Chairs
You might want to describe the conservation process of our latest pair of Art Deco French leather club chairs, as completely insane and we would not argue. In our endless endeavor to perfect our craft to rebuild French leather club chairs to a higher standard, we are constantly looking at ways to improve our techniques. Not only did we strip the French leather club chair frames down to their bare wood skeleton, but when we removed all of the original leather panels, we glue a heavy fabric to the back side of each piece of leather, that prevents the original leather from ever cracking open. Sound like a simple task, but we had two-master upholsters spend 80-hours each rebuilding our pair of French leather club chairs. The entire restoration process was done with one thought in mind; make sure you would never notice anyone ever touched the club chairs. We also took the time to photograph all the steps, so that the new owner of the French club chairs, would have photographic documentation of the entire process. Inside the pair of club chairs, you will find that all of the coil springs have been newly hand-tied, including the seat bottom, seat back and even both arms. Padding used was strictly old-school, with horsehair and wool wadding. After our in-house Old Plank upholstery department spend 160-man hours of labor, the club chairs were then moved into the finishing department for a further 2-days of finessing the color of leather. In the end what you have, is a pair of French leather club chairs that sit they way they were intended to almost 100-years ago, look as though no one ever touched the chairs and that will last for decades to come. Some might describe this pair of club chairs as “the bee’s knees”, “to the nines”, or simply, “as good as it gets”. Seat height 17 inches
