Before & After: Ward Bennett Scissor Chairs
We just restored these two Ward Bennett Scissor Chairs for a client. When they arrived, as you can see, the leather was worn and torn, and the wood had been bleached by the sun for years.
Ward Bennett designed this chair in 1968, and it was quite a popular style. It was manufactured by Brickel and said to be his most comfortable chair. The chair was made in both a wood version and in steel.
We love the warmth that the wood has when paired with leather. We completely refinished the wood, bringing it back to a beautiful luster, and reupholstered it in all new leather.
