A Chippendale sofa in our studio caught my eye; Mitchell does such beautiful work!
Above, Mitchell thinking about the various things he has to do to this
family heirloom in order to resurrect it from the broken state.
The Chippendale sofa’s arm was broken and sagging, leg broken,
parts of the frame broken, and it was badly in need of having its innards conserved. At the client’s home, from an image.
Below, after the conservation, with a new embroidered cotton velvet showcover. Possibly one of my favorite pieces he ever conserved, it was edible!
