In preparation to pass down a family heirloom to an expecting niece, I asked East Flag Upholstery and Carpet to re-cover and stuff our antique rocking chair. While I was on the waiting list for a long time, the came through in the nick of time and went beyond my expectations.
I’d picked the fabric from their remnants, and got dibs on some silver tacks that matched the fabric nicely. What I wasn’t expecting were the little touches. The upholsterer added a fancy blue trim under the tacks, and went through the chair joints to secure them with a bit of added glue.
The chair was one of a pair that originally belonged to Stuart’s grandmother.
