Before - above and to the right, a pair of very sturdy old wing chairs and matching footstool, the upholstery was tired but the frames were in excellent condition. The client didn't want to throw them out so decided to have loose covers made and reuse them in the conservatory of their new home.
After - above and right, the clients were delighted with their new covers and said that their furniture looked like it had been re-upholstered.
If the furniture has nice legs I like to expose them. I've always believed, if you've got it you should flaunt it!
