I came across two Saarinen Executive chairs, the rareclosed back version, in desperate need of restoration. This is a project I want to take on myself, but this is unlike other upholstery projects I’ve done in the past.
Can anyone help with a couple areas I’m struggling with? First, what is the best way to sculpt the new foam onto the fiberglass shell? Also, is the back piece of fabric hand-stitched to the welting when it’s closed up like the womb chair, or is there an easier way to do this?
