Handsome Vintage Wing Chairs

April 26, 2012 by admin

Now here’s a reason to believe in reupholstery!  I found a pair of amazing vintage wing chairs in a tragic forest green upholstery and freshened them up with charcoal linen fabric and newly stained legs.  I’m totally in love with them and all of their special details…

The classic solid fabric lets you appreciate the elegant silhouette and also gives them substance and presence.  I especially love the turned arms and the little button detail – so special!  These chairs were completely made over, yet maintain the gorgeous vintage shape and design integrity and cost $1250 per chair.

If they look like a great place to curl up with a book by the fire, give me a shout at Penney & Company!

    They’re fabulous! Excellent fabric for hiding a multitude of sins.

    I need a centre piece for my dining room table, preferably candle/candles. You don’t happen to have anything, do you? I guess a big vase of some sort would also do the trick…..

    I have a chair very similar to these and mine needs to be reupholstered but how do you find someone to do this that does not charge an arm and a leg? How do i know what a resonable cost is? I have a real cool chair from my Oma that needs to be recovered too..It has chrome arms and legs..its so cool!

    Wonderful looking chairs. Quick question, who do you recommend for re-finishing/reupholstering? And also the cost factor, how much is too much!!

    We received a wonderful Solid White Oak Dining Set from my grandmother (very contemporary), we love the set, however the table show’s its wear and the finish is chipping off (including on the leaf insert) The chairs have also seen better days and the current fabric is tearing the more they are sat upon. The hutch that came with it is in perfect condition and needs no TLC.
    Your recommendation would be more than helpful!!

    Beautiful chairs. I love the color. Do you do your own upholstering? Nancy
