This mid century Danish chair is in some need restoration.
The chair is constructed from Beech timber and fiberglass lucky for us the fiberglass is in great shape.
This chair needs to be taken right back and we will keep the old fabric as a Template guide.
It took some work to scrape off all the Latex rubber that was heavily glued to the fiberglass.
The most important thing to do was be very careful with removing the staples and then scraping the fiberglass as the chair is about fifty years old.
We have replaced the Latex padding with Dunlop c120 High Density foam.
The we cut and laminated a softer Cerex foam on top and I have not glued the arm pieces on to show the high density foam that is under the softer laminated foam.
Also we Have webbed the chair in Latex webbing.
Slip stitching is not an easy process especially on a chair with so many curves and angles.
In order to restore the chair we had to go about it the way they did back when the chair was produced 50 years ago.
We have cut and sewn up the front cover using Kvadrat fabric which is them stapled off onto the fiberglass frame.
The cushion is sewn and slip stitched at the back and the timber is lightly sanded and French polished.
This great Teak table by Parker Furniture Australia had lots of marks scratched and blemishes in the teak timber table top.
We sanded the top back with 230 grade sandpaper being careful not to blow out the Veneer as it is only a couple of mm thick.
When rubbed back we simply applied Danish oil every 4 hours and finished the final coat with steel wool and a hand polish when dry.
