I got this little chair awhile back and of course sliced open the back before remembering to take a photo or two! I was just dying to know what padding it had originally because there sure wasn’t anything there when I got it. (Turns out it was latex foam over jute webbing, and the foam had dried up and crumbled to dust, leaving some very slack fabric.)
I added new padding all over. The back might be a little thicker than it was originally but it’s SO comfy now.
The original fabric was a beautiful ribbed wool epingle (tiny loops of wool in sculpted rows). Unfortunately it was completely worn out in places or I would have considered reusing it somehow. I hope I find some more someday.
I thought the chair might have been made in Sweden because it has the exact same interlocking coil springs as another Swedish chair I did recently. But then I found this tag in German in the springs. Maybe Swedish furniture makers used German-made springs? I don’t know.
The new fabric is Knoll’s Classic Boucle in a soft red.
