ABOUT
A pair of beautifully restored Svegards Markargd Carver Dining Chairs made from Asian Rosewood. They have been newly upholstered in an eye-catching mustard yellow woollen fabric that echoes the classic yellow and orange hues of mid-century modern design.

PERIOD
Mid Century Modern. Designed by Svedgards Markargd, a popular Swedish furniture brand that produced high quality furniture during the 1950's and 60's. Although it is relatively easy to buy Markargd dining chairs online, the carver chairs are much rarer. An experienced professional upholsterer has restored this pair of carver chairs and re-upholstered them in a rich mustard yellow fabric that accentuates the clean lines of the woodwork.

MATERIALS
Asian Rosewood, fabric (92% wool, 8% nylon), foam, plywood board.

CONDITION
Excellent: fully restored in 2018.

DIMENSIONS
Width – 50cm; Depth – 48cm; Full height – 96cm; Height of seat from base – 47.5cm.

THE STORY BEHIND THE PIECE
These chairs were bought in a specialist mid century auction in Belgium. The rosewood on one of the chairs was slightly sun-damaged but thanks to a local woodwork restorer in Bristol, they have regained their rich natural colour. They were originally upholstered in a beige tweed fabric that was worn and stained but now look stunning.

OTHER DETAILS
The chair frames are made from Asian Rosewood. This is an alternative to Brazilian Rosewood, which is regarded as the highest quality rosewood. However, Asian Rosewood became more common amongst furniture designers when Brazilian Rosewood became hard to source legally. The quality of Asian Rosewood is still very good. It’s hard to distinguish the difference in appearance but Asian Rosewood isn’t as heavy as Brazilian Rosewood.
The new fabric is from a British company, BUTE. This company specialises in high quality woollen and woollen-mix upholstery fabrics in a wide range of weaves and colours. This fabric is: ELGIN – Sun – CF667/ 8178. It has a Martindale Rub Test of 100,000 (the minimum for general domestic upholstery is 20,000), so is very durable. It has passed the Crib 5 Test for fire retardancy.
