After unloading the container from my most recent trip I have unwrapped some great antique chairs. I wanted to let you know how I go about posting them, most, in their VERY outdated fabric. I leave them on the website for awhile until I need them at the shop. Then they go off to be recovered and the price goes up. Most times designers buy them off of the website for their clients and add the fabric.
Faithful website clients LOVE the chairs with NEW fabric at the store, and are shocked when I tell them they have been on my website for weeks at a lower price. Be a careful website peruser because ALWAYS they are priced much less before fabric and upholstery labor has been added.
Very often an old fabric can make you turn away from a great chair find.
When I choose the fabric it is almost always a neutral and it adds a good price to the chairs. You can be in on the fabric choice early thereby scoring a great deal and ending up with as wild a fabric that suits your needs like the chairs, above and I will be happy to send it off to my upholsterer.
Antique chairs add a warmth and importance.....there is no reproduction that can copy real antique wood.
I have a set of dining chairs like these available and also beautiful neutral fabrics to choose from.
I will gladly help you with fabric choices.
