Love a wingback

Look what we found: a pair of linen covered wingbacks.
I have always loved a good wingback - they're cosy and just the right degree of comfortable elegance for me.

I'm not a florally person, but I really like these. They were free to good home and we even found 50c in the corner!

Quite a bit of TLC is needed to clean them up; new seat cushions and maybe new taller legs (they were made for stumpy people).

Hubbie likes them too I think - we have been rearranging lounge room to see where they go best and this means removing old sofabed couch (one down, one to go).

The upholsterer's details are on the bottom, but not around in Melbourne anymore - there is a company of the same name in Hobart, so I will ring them next week to see if the fabric is still around. Fingers crossed!

lucky you, Bronwyn. They are lovely - I have a thing for wingbacks - I am on the lookout for one as we speak. The fabric looks like Sanderson - my parents have a suite similar. Good luck with them and can't wait to see what you do with them.

What a great find! I love wingbacks too - but ours are just from Freedom. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Hi Bronwyn,

Lovely Chair!

Compared to most furniture made today, older furniture was made to last! Even if you have to spend some money to rejuvenate them, what a bargain. My Grandma had a beautiful linen covered lounge suite, it is such a lovely look. My mother now has it, and it is covered in a lovely buttery yellow coloured linen with warm florals - dahlias and orchids from memory.

Looking forward to seeing what happens to them!
