Our client had this swivel captains chair in a frame only state and were looking to do a revival on it. It was a blank canvas as the original upholstery had been deconstructed already when it arrived to us. They wanted something coastal to fit into their home and we had spoken about a few ideas around what we could do with this chair. A gorgeous white grey calf hide was chosen as the textile for the chair and we were inspired straight away.
The frame has been hand painted and washed several times with two tones of grey to add to its character and give it a coastal look, the edges have been lightly distressed to allow the dark undertones to come through and frame the paint finish. The seat has been rebuilt and recovered with a beautiful soft calf hide then framed off with distressed silver coloured studs.
The end result is a gorgeous swivel captains chair very coastal chic that met our clients brief. A beautiful solid chair has now been revived and sits as a feature piece, in a very coastal styled room. Another revival we are proud of.
