Leather club chairs can be stubborn beasts. They don’t like to be confined into small spaces (like put in storage)and crushed up against other objects.
As you can see from the image below the (outside) arm’s on this Michell Gold armchair suffered internal as well as external damage.
Having serviced the outside arms (restoring the fillings, restraining the hide and then feeding it with hide food & Carnauba), a snap on Instagram ,
some viewers useful feedback from my peers and then a chat to my customer confirmed what else I had suspected needed to be sorted out to prevent any further
damage. To which end I created and fitted a new seat unit, which would help prevent the seat cushion borders from excessive wear and tear.
Definitely worth doing the seat. Now this happy chappy has rejoined its family. (Many thanks for the brief visit!)
