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.
The career of the restorer of old leather armchairs
The wonder of the people was great in front of this great artisanal know-how that was the result of the renovations of the armchairs club and sofas leather club Old: All the furniture, once passed in the workshop of leather Brittany, had become unique pieces. Very soon, the interested parties came to buy the reworked products: club armchairs, antique furniture of all kinds, club sofas and other vintage seats in leather, imitation leather or other. Thus, these old old club armchairs, whether with file hat of gendarme or other, now adorn full of salons and houses of buyers. They are delighted with their purchases and the quality work done by the Atelier du cuir-Bretagne.
