After many years in the antiques trade, I learned how to do my own reupholstery reasonably well, but sadly when it came to barrel chairs, I would usually pass on them when I saw them for sale, and I would always refuse to recover them for clients - they are just too difficult even for a reasonably experienced upholsterer. Straight back and sides I could manage, but many of the older chairs had tufted or ribbed backs, which involves an incredible amount of work, and if the fabric is patterned, they can look like a dog's dinner when you've finished.
At the end of last year, during the holidays and on a rainy day, we were randomly approached by a man who invited us to join him at the bar he was going to in order to have a drink. It happened just like that out of the blue and as a New Yorker, I was very quick to dismiss and ignore him. I wanted to go into the bookstore where my new English language order awaited me and we smiled and brushed him off.
