We had originally wanted mid-century teak dining chairs as we thought the colour would work better with our table, but we really liked the lines of these chairs, and decided on them ,even though they were rosewood instead of teak. To me they look like the love child of a Chippendale and a Finn Juhl. Anyhow, they came with the original seat fabric, a lovely but worn out looking tweed. So on Friday my wife picked up some fabric samples from Designer Fabrics.
We settled on the fabric on the top left. I spent the rest of the weekend reupholstering. Taking the seats off was easy as the manufacturer used allen bolts to hold the seats to the frame.
Once i removed the seat i noticed the frame had a stamp on it that said Danish Overseas Furniture Co, which i thought was pretty neat. Not sure how old these chairs are, but they were in really great condition.
I added a bit of extra dacron batting and the new fabric right over the original (who knows maybe the chairs if left original will be worth something one day - doubtful but who knows). Anyhow, we really like the chairs with the new fabric. We bought enough extra fabric, that if we ever have spills we can always recover 4 more chairs. Here's an after:
