Passion for Vintage Furniture

But nevertheless, he preferred the old leather club chair. This patina of old leather! How beautiful ! In addition, the club chairs have different backrest shapes and armrests of armrests. The names of these different shapes are also fascinating: back mustache, folder hat of gendarme, straight back, file folder, round file .... All this fascinated him to the highest point.

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. Once the leather armchair was renovated, it was almost unrecognizable, so it was beautiful!
