Custom Color Choice for a Gorgeous Chair

 It is rare that we get to put pictures up on our site of a chair that has not only had a beautiful new finish put on, but also has the upholstery done.  This is a special case though, as one of the upholsterers we work with in the area needed to bring the chair back to have casters put on.  Which means we got a chance to snap a pic!

This is such a unique chair design with it's shell shaped back and curlicue accents.  The chair only required minor repairs before the refinishing work was done.  A few joints had come loose which we needed to glue back together.  

When it came time to choose a stain, our client had a very specific look they were going for.  To achieve that look, we mixed up a custom color for them using 2 parts 'natural' stain and 1 part 'brown cherry' stain.   Then we applied a satin sheen finish over the top.  The custom color looks just right with the fabric they chose.  While this wasn't the most complex or unusual job we have ever done, we are so happy to be able to help our clients restore their beloved pieces such as this.  It is also pretty satisfying to know that we were able to help them create a specific look that they wanted for their home.

Any time a client has a piece of furniture refinished here at our shop we have them come in for a color constultation once all the striping, repairs and prep work are done.  This way each client gets to see exactly how the stain colors will look on their wood.  We will show them as many different colors and combination of colors that they need, so that they can make the best decision for their furniture.  This extra consultation step is something that we pride ourselves in,  the extra effort to make sure each of our clients is perfectly happy with their furniture.
