It needs a great deal of trim, many yards of it, so I have to order the yardage.
It is a gorgeous taupe linen. I love it, it is now covered in heavy plastic and everyone has strict orders not to touch it. Woe to any animal who thinks it looks comfortable!
I will repost pics when the trim is finished.
There is new burlap straps on the bottom, new burlap over the old springs which I restrung. Then there is foam covered with many layers of cotton batting, the edge wire is also covered in heavy cotton linters and covered in burlap, as a sort of fox-edging, then over the batting is a muslin layer and then the linen.
The arm rests and the backs still contain the over 100 year old batting and horse hair.
It wa a lot of work but I love the way it looks, it was so worth it.
