His first piece of renovation
The first piece of furniture he gave a second life thanks to the renovation of leather and the restoration of old leather was a club chair with a mustache back in the 1940s. , This beautiful vintage furniture! For the restoration, he entirely rebuilt the bellows and the seat. The padding was done with vegetable hair. And the padding of the cushion with, among others, feathers. The leather was vintage, very old. He had to renovate it completely: he skated old-fashioned leather, and restored the armrests and arm-rests of new leather, which he skated in the old fashion. But underneath, there were straps and no-sag springs! So he was able to restore life to this old armchair club with mustache back.

The development of craftsmanship
After the first successful first renovation, Thierry Perrodou started his second club chair. This one was a club chair with gendarme hat. It was an old vintage seat, the armchair was dating back to the 1930s. At first glance, this poor chair did not look as he had managed to find in a barn watch, completely covered with dust and straw. There was even a nest of pigeons on the seat! The leather of this poor club chair with a gendarme hat was extremely damaged. The artisan Thierry Perrodou had to remake this armchair club entirely. The renovation took him very long. He had to tighten no-sag straps and springs. Then he made padding armrests and armrests with vegetable hair. The padding of the cushion, which he had to make in new leather, was partly made of feathers. Then he skated the old-fashioned leather, of a beautiful brown cognac color. The club chair with gendarme hat was completely restored.
