Before and After - Hickory Chair Wingbacks

I have previously described how well Hickory Chair furniture is made (manufactured in Hickory, NC of course).  The quality of construction and attention to detail remains one of the best in America - comparable to Southwood and Baker.  If you find Hickory Chair upholstered furniture in relatively good shape for a good price, it is a good value and worth spending the money to redo.  I recently found a great looking pair of wingbacks that needed a new life.

Before - Hickory Chair Wingback
The fabric I choose is an Italian soft linen in a cream and ecru damask pattern.  I had bought a number of fabrics on ebay from a High Point company that provided "only to the trade" imported Italian fabrics of impeccable quality and I have used dozens of their fabrics.  I have the exact same fabric in a broad stripe that I can't wait to use on a deserving piece.  Unfortunately, despite my buying spree, the company decided that ebay was not profitable enough for their sales and these nice fabrics are no longer available - I wish I had bought LOTS more when I could.

This lovely set is still for sale but may not be by the end of the day since I seem to have a Washington State client that really wants them.
