I bought this chair with a client for $100. Her husband hates that we spiff things up. He knows it will cost a lot more and take forever. Well...that's fairly accurate.
We added one new down cushion flown in from Manhattan, some walnut colored lacquer and 7 yards of Suzanne Rheinstein's Paisley Linen for Lee Jofa.
...and voila. A $100 chair no more...but an heirloom for their kids...and that's pretty cool.
