There are many ways to throw new life in these antique pieces of barrel chair slipcovers. The person may be surprised to know the number of ways by which this old furniture can be professionally restored. If the bones of furniture do not fit in well, they can be restyled to gibe with your current home decor. Padding is always a welcomed option to soften the lines of a chair or a recliner. The pleated chair skirts with a tailored seat back and a similar table cloth are also appreciable options to refurbish the old barrel chair slipcovers.
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.
