Before and After Upholstery

Sometimes my upholstery backlog keeps me offline for a while. These 2 matching fan back channel chairs were for a customer in D.C. I got them out this week, along with another arm chair (pics soon to follow).

Happy to see them move through the shop. It is hard but gratifying work!

Hi! Stumbled on your blogg a little while back and have kept coming back. I was so happy to find a blogg with real craftsmanship upholstery……I have enjoyed looking at your before and after pics. I’m a certified upholsterer in Sweden and run my own shop for 8 years before we moved to California in 1993. Worked as an upholsterer the first couple of year until the shop I worked at closed.
Anyway, I’m getting the urge to get back to do some upholstery again…….I did noticed that you were working with horsehair, do you mind sharing your source? I had no luck when I tried to find it in the past, maybe time has changed…….Please, keep posting your before and after pics!

Love your work!
I am looking for a pair of chairs like this. Do you know who manufactures them? Or where they bought them? Any information you can provide would be helpful.
