Before - one of 2 armchairs, which was originally made around 1850 according to the owner and although it had been reupholstered since then and the condition of the upholstery was reasonable, the client wanted a change.
After - a loose cover can transform the whole room as well as the furniture. The room looks refreshed, brighter and very summery just by changing the fabric on the armchairs.
Below is a wider shot of both armchairs.
On the right is a close up of the arm detail of the cover.
