Hot off the bench: Restoration of sofa & chairs


This fantastic late 19th century sofa was in desperate need of woodwork repair as well as upholstery. New veneers and fills were applied to the woodwork as needed and a fantastic floral fabric was applied, making this quite an eye-catching piece! The best part of the story is that the client paid $1 for the sofa at auction several years ago!

Upholstery work in progress.

These chairs belong to the same client and were made by a family member many years ago.


It's amazing how far back old wood will come with expert attention!
