Vintage Parker Knoll deep button club chair – bespoke upholstery
This week we’ve had the pleasure of working on a vintage Parker Knoll deep button club chair. We collected the chair from the client’s home in Heaton Moor, Stockport. Although in great condition, it was clear that the green velvet fabric had seen better days.
Now complete, we think this little beauty looks rather regal once more. Upholstered in Moon & Sons charcoal grey (100% wool), with deep button detail, we stripped the chair of the old fabric, replaced the cushions and padding before reupholstering with this rich new fabric. We also stripped back the wood and waxed to enhance its natural colour.
