Thonet Cafe Chair Repair
A family of four chairs originally manufactured over a century ago. They came into the shop in parts, many badly damaged, in need of structural and cosmetic repair. Original details, patina and previous repairs were kept intact and new repairs were left visible. Each chair had its own unique flaws to be resolved and we strove to preserve their individuallity. After splicing, patching and reinforcing the wood parts they were refinisihed and new caning was put in. The final hardware is a combination of original and new elements.
