Restoration of a pair Directoire armchairs in solid cherrywood, originally with straws seats then later upholstered.

Their very original shape somewhat complicated their restoration, but their seats showed no weaknesses during the reassembly.

The crosspieces were restructured to receive their new straw seats. The round rim in bent cherrywod was replaced.

After cleaning them and reviving the tint, I finished by giving them a wax patina.
