Here's one of the most jaw-dropping upholstery projects we worked on recently, which I thought you guys and gals would enjoy.
This is a gorgeous Victorian carved mahogany "tub chair". I would date it to around 1870-1880, but it's hard to say for sure.
The chair arrived to us in a grubby old floral pattern, and the piping/edging was missing. The chair had breaks to both front arms, and it needed a lot of work.
