About the project
A striking pair of 1960s bentwood carver chairs manufactured and designed by ‘Ben Chairs’ a company based in Frome, Somerset. Found at a local auction with their original vinyl faded and the foam seat pads crumbling to dust. Homeward sanded and cleaned the wood and finished with Danish Oil to give a nice natural appearance. The new upholstery fabric is a lovely simple design by Angie Lewin for St Judes in a bold ‘Golden Orche’ colourway giving these chairs a stunning new look.
