The mid century chair to the left is an original design by Kerstin Horlin Holmquist that was repaired, restored and reupholstered. The chair on the right is a reproduction that was upholstered with the same fabric as the original. Often these lounge chairs are sold as a single piece, but to create balance a second matching chair is ideal. We specialize in creating museum quality reproductions of any historical style.
This originally was a pair of red lacquer coffee tables from the 60s. The client wanted the pair to be refinished in black lacquer, with the same gloss lacquer finish only a different color. The process included removing the existing lacquer, preparing the pieces of furniture and applying new coats of black lacquer.
The head of an animal, often a lion or leopard, was first seen in Roman furniture and was later reintroduced during the by neoclassical period. The use of classical design elements helped to develop the ‘English Empire’ element present in Regency furniture. This Regency Chair we recently restored resurrecting some of the Regency decorative elements, refinishing and recarvine portions as well.
