An original 1950's Heron armchair with a metal frame and turned square-section steel legs.

The chair has been fully reupholstered and is once again a truly astonishing piece of furniture.

The frame has been completely stripped and crucially reupholstered using traditional techniques and materials, as per the original design.

All layers of materials (hessian, hair, layered felt, calico and fabric) have been hand stitched to the metal frame.

As with all our upholstered items, the chair now complies with the UK Furniture and Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations

Upon completion of the sale, we will also provide a photo of the stripped frame to evidence the work undertaken.

A beautiful grey wool from Kvadrat's Hallingdal collection has been used as top cover. A sample of the fabric can be provided upon request.

The legs are totally original and untouched. There are some minor marks and some small areas where the finish has come off, but these in our opinion just add to the charm of this incredibly special piece.
