I have recently acquired an Ole Wanscher, senator, France and son, teak sofa from eBay in need of restoration. I have stripped the old finish and want to know what product to use to refinish it for an authentic restoration. I thought maybe a Danish oil?
The 6 cushion covers are not the original but possibly the spring cushion inners are. They aren’t very comfortable and even covered in new foam I doubt they will be as comfortable as new foam inners. What are people’s thoughts on replacing original spring cushions for foam? The reupholster has left the choice to me.
Also, the cushions have less back support than some other variations and I noticed the cushions fall through the back if you are sitting or lying more casually on the sofa. Surely it wouldn’t have done this originally as it is too big a design flaw. Does anyone know if the original cushions were joined together or something similar so this didn’t happen. A picture of the back of same model is attached.
