Flashback Friday: Upholstered Chair Before & After

One of Robin Bond Interiors’ favorite project types is furniture re-upholstery. Many of our clients have beautiful antique pieces that hold sentimental value or are passed down from generation to generation. Some antiques are embellished with hand-carved artistic detail and are connected with dovetail joints that can last the test of time. We often encounter antique furniture that is still in amazing condition structurally, but that is covered in outdated, worn or tearing fabric.

We believe these pieces are worth restoring. We have the best resources to give old pieces new life with the aesthetic of today.

We recently reupholstered this antique chair for a loyal RBI client in Austin for use in her formal living room. Floral fabric was replaced with a modern grey chenille. Silver tacks were replaced with natural bronze tacks to better compliment the chair’s new finish. Additional padding was added to the back and seat cushions to ensure comfort and longevity. The finished look is simplistic and modern, which draws focus back to the natural beauty and detail of this antique accent chair.
