Grandpa’s Lawsons are born again for an orchard in Southern Oregon;
Grandpa was on hand for delivery day, and even had the first sit!
From dilapidated to stunning. Excavated to the frames; frames refitted as necessary.
All interior buildup was conserved. Coil-Spring backs and seat decks, and spring core cushion — which by the way, are the most comfortable cushions ever built!
Traditional upholsterers and conservators restore and preserve the interior buildup,
which is a much better “sit.” Most upholsterers do not know how to do this work:
they remove the original buildup and re-stuff seats and backs with foam.
This causes early breakdown of internals and is not nearly as comfy!
BTW, the ottoman both have fitted washable coverlets on them —
this is a working farm, and dirty boots are not uncommon!
The original fabric was intact, though if you sat on them you felt as if you would
hit the floor! The grown-up kids wanted to freshen the look entirely.
