Description

Welcome to the online course upholster a cantilever steel tubular chair with clasps. This model is of the series Cirrus of Dutch designer Gispen. On the outside there are no bolts or screws. The backrest consists of two parts. The upholstery is fastened with staples. Do you have a simular chair you want to reupholster yourself, than this course is exactly what you need to get a professional finish. This is a step by step guide in which I will show you the tools you will need, explain about the foam and fabric. There is no sewing involved. The chair will be cleared to the bare wood and built up again from scratch, so it will last for a another number of years. If you are in any doubt if your chair is suitable for this course, please do not hesitate and contact me, because there are many models of this type of chair.

  • Anyone with an interest in upholstery
  • Stylists and designers who want to know more about upholstery other than just nice fabric
