My client was a fan of art deco furniture and managed to acquire a set of four tub chairs. They were in however quite poor condition. In particular they had been upholstered over the show wood around the side of the seats.  The old upholstery was carefully removed.  All the old staples and tacks were removed and the wood consolidated. It was then veneered in walnut veneer and polished with shellac.  the chairs were then  upholstered in a white leather with brown leather piping in the correct manner. The chairs looked quite stunning once completed.
