Mid Century Lounge Chair Restoration

Mid Century Decor can be very generally characterised by the use of clean lines, curves and smooth surfaces to create an understated look.

Bold colour fabrics against a neutral coloured wall was often synomous with mid century decor.

Form follows function.

So bearing all these facts in mind we mindfully restored these wonderful iconic chairs.

To keep their structural integrity , we took care in our restoration processes …

The Process for restoration involved careful dismantling of all pieces, removal of existing finish ( in this instance paint)

reglueing and repairing where needed.

New fabric was chosen by the client to compliment the wonderful richness of the grain which was quite eveident once the paint had been removed and the fabulous blue hues co ordinated wonderfully with their existing furniture

Just stunning

Making a Statement with Upholstry

Designing a lounge suite that is classic, yet modern, stylish but would not date and most importantly be very comfortable to spend hours reading,  were the important aspects required for our lovely clients. In collaboration with Stuart a design evolved that worked well with their decor, a design that would be enhanced by striking upholstry . Using recyled Tasmanian Oak these gorgeous lounge room furniture pieces now take pride and place in a very happy  home.

The solid timber construction coupled with professional upholstry ensures that these pieces remain in excellent condition for many lounging  years to come





>Corporate Designs...

>Late last year, Bywater Design was approached by Bally Cara Retirement Village on the Redcliffe Peninsula to fit out their Corporate Guest area.The goal was to furnish the client receiving area with lounge chairs, coffee table and side cabinet.  After thorough consultation, we were able to design lounges with both comfort and style and incorporate  the clean lines of these chairs with the coffee table.

The whole fresh look is enhanced by the use of the cream coloured textured upholstery, highlighting the beautiful Jarrah timber used and the design structure of the chair. All pieces were finished with a 2pac  finish for appearance and longevity. For all corporate design enquiries please contact us at The Bywater Design Workshop
