Beautiful Womb Chair restorations & reupholstery

We love getting chairs delivered to our workshop in complete disrepair. Usually by the time we are called, a piece has been used, loved, and sometimes abused for a while before the owner decides to restore it. Sometimes the piece has been inherited, sometimes acquired at auction and even sometimes (although rare) scored at a thrift store or garage sale. It is always worth having a chair restored, because these pieces are made to span the years and are always in style. This is what they usually look like when we receive them:

And after...

We typically recommend using Kvadrat Hallingdal on the Womb Chair, which is what the above chair has been reupholstered in. It comes in a variety of colors, many of which are period perfect for these mid-century modern chairs, and doesn't compete with the chrome. Here is another recent Womb Chair reupholstery:

Beautiful, isn't it? Inviting, no? All in a days' work here at Classic Design!
