The Breton boy and his love for the old club chairs
There was once a man, a Breton by the name of Thierry Perrodou. As a young boy, he discovered a passion for old-fashioned objects and things, namely old vintage leather furniture. It was especially for the club chairs of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s that he developed a true passion. It became a true love. But he also loved the club sofas of the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, as well as those of the 1920s and 1960s. All these beautiful antique furniture, these beautiful leather seats Made their entrance into his heart. They stayed there forever. He also loved all the antique furniture of Art Deco, a style, an era, which he was passionately fond of.
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.
