I’m back! I’ve got a backlog of projects for the new year, so check back often for updates.
I think it was modified in the 70s to go with a traditional sofa. The fabric is one of those dobby weaves that were popular back then, and it obviously had cushions that had disappeared along the way. It’s not supposed to be sat in the way it looks here.
Unfortunately I neglected to get a good shot of the finished chair but you can get an idea of the difference. I added foam to the seat and back, with a thin layer of extra-firm foam in the lumbar region for comfortable support.
The fabric is Knoll’s “Classic Boucle” in the Red Fox colorway. This is a very popular fabric for mid-century modern upholstery and is one of my favorites to work with. It comes in great colors and is reasonably durable. The fiber content is half wool and half nylon and it just feels nice. We have some of the colors in stock; stop by Home Anthology in Catonsville on the weekends to check ’em out!
