Elaine was looking for a nice bentwood arm chair for her living room and I happened to have a Heal's frame in need of renovation. The chair model appears in the Heal's catalogue of the 1930s as design number S394.
Now it's been rebuilt from the frame up, covered in a lovely textured wool from Bute Fabrics and it’s all-in-one arm/leg combo was restored using using traditional wood finishing techniques. It felt very satisfying to give this lovely chair a new lease of life!
"Nicki had a beautiful vintage Heals arm chair in need of TLC which I fell in love with. She was very patient with me helping me to choose just the right fabric. She did a fantastic job with the upholstery; it's just so gorgeous."
