There were about 50 Steelcase Please chairs to re-cover with new fabric. Over time the original fabric had worn away and the padding was starting to come through! The orginal fabric was a mix of black on the top of the chair back and seat pad, with a yellow fabric in the middle section of the chair back. The chairs also needed new foam or padding, which was easy to do. The fabric chosen was a group 2 fabric and made by camira fabrics. There are lots of fabrics to choose from and whatever colour you are looking for, the fabric manufacturers will have it in their ranges. Reupholstering the chairs were very easy and it allowed the client to refurbish the chairs at a fraction of the cost of buying new, which was great as it meant that the chairs could continued to be used.

For this particular set of Wilkhahn chairs, after we had done the initial assessment and checked what needed doing, we only really needed to update and change the fabric.
The padding on the chairs was still in good condition, which doesn’t often happen because as the fabric starts to wear the padding usually goes too!
The fabric that was eventually chosen was from the Kvadrat range called Tonus. The client was looking for a really modern looking colour to match with the re-brand and went for a lime green colour – which you can see in the picture!
On the second set of chairs that were collected – the chairs were no longer able to move up and down, which meant that they needed new gas lifts that are easy to replace and fit!
