One chair more or less matches the sofa
but the other is being the little one of the family Don't ask how I managed that as the two chair frames were more or less identical

They do look so real - but you are good at making little things real; there's no doubt about that!

They are FAB! We had father & mother chairs in our house too, not this style but even so...!

They are brilliant. Love the "sat upon" look of the cushions & all the upholstery details. Fab!

These are absolutely FANTASTIC Do. I love all the details - the round knobby feet, the cured armrests and the fabulous piping. You found just the right sort of fine shiny leather too. Brilliant job! (And who cares if the armchairs aren't 110% identical?)

These are beautifully made - well done for persevering with them! The leather looks so well stretched and the piping detail really finishes them off.

Interestingly enough, my parent's had a set made at the Papworth workshops before WW2, and the armchairs were graded down, Father chair and Mother chair so fault to find with yours.

Oh? Like the Victorian Father and Mother chairs? Well that's quite comorting to know - thank you :) My parents suite was pre-1940 too but the chairs did match in size. We had them forever - they were re-upholstered some time in the 60s and are probably the only full size chairs that I've sat in that weren't too criplingly long in the seat squab, may I say.

Did you make these from scratch? They're fab!

I'm afraid I did - with many curses, sticky fingers and false starts. I hadn't realised how bad I had become at following instructions so they've taken me since the beginning of March (on and off). No table surface in our house is safe from minute leather clippings and glue globs!
