Owner Terry Ledford on the vintage 1960s chair shown above: "I had the chair reupholstered using new fabric I sourced. I will be doing this going forward -- finding vintage upholstered pieces, choosing new fabrics and having them reupholstered. I love taking older pieces and making them new!"
Ledford on the accessories below: "All of the items were also from the 1960s. We hand sanded each piece to remove the finish and then use a satin varnish on the casing and latex paint to paint out the fronts."
