More Swedish Baroque Chairs

For those who follow the blog, you surly have found several postings about our Swedish distributors Annika and Leif Arvidsson form Lages AB. As upholsterers they work for antiques dealers, museums and whom ever wishes to have their chairs done by expert hands.
Earlier this year we worked with them on a large set of Baroque chairs.

  The whole set of chairs

Swedish television made a reportage about the story and the upholstery work done in the studios of Lages AB.  But at first, Annika shows how patiently she makes her own Gilt Leather…..
