We were brought this rare Parker Knoll armchair by a very lovely lady. She had stored the chair in her garage for several years and the time had come to either send it to the skip or have it restored.
We were so glad she brought this exciting project to us, we could immediately visualise how beautiful the armchair could be even with the uninvited spiders. This is a very unusual piece circa 1959 which demonstrates the craftmanship and quality of materials used by Parker Knoll. These armchairs were definitely designed to last a lifetime.
After a good clean and some minor repairs to the frame we French polished the wood bringing it back to its former glory. We then rebuilt the shape creating a luxuriously padded armchair covered in a soft turquoise wool from Moon Fabrics. Our customer was amazed by the transformation and I hope you are too.
