This traditional suite had lived in its home since the 1920’s or 30’s and had never left. With the chairs looking a bit worse for wear and a couple that had gone missing over the years the owner decided it was time for a refresh, and a couple of matching chairs to make the suite whole again.
Whilst pulled apart for restoration we copied the parts to re-create the missing chairs.
The owner wanted the suite to be restored true to its original condition, so the old finish was removed and a new French polish was completed.
The end result is stunning, and there’s no way to tell which chairs are the restored originals or the new copies.
