Calling out spanky in particular because I know he has done this project before.
I picked up a free chair a few years ago and am finally getting around to starting it. See chair in picture 1. Egg style bastardized chair with buckles and a whole lot of leather. I posted it in a “last acquired thread”.
“Amazake, I've stripped a few chairs like that down to their styrofoam shells, added 1" foam to the inside back and arms, and upholstered in solid color fabric (I think I used Knoll "Classic Boucle" on all of them, because it works well on curves). They have a whole different look without the over-the-top cushion and they're quite comfortable because the styrofoam shells have just the right lumbar curve.”
See photo 2 of spanky’s work.
I have stripped the chair and ottoman to its shell and saved the skin to have upholsterers use it as a template. I am in the Boston, Massachusetts area what will a project like this cost? I am aware the upholstery cost itself varies. I don’t know how much fabric a chair needs nor the labor cost associated with it. Suggestions of vendors is appreciated.
