Very nice. What is the name of the design? I think these are the same as a 2nd-hand sofa and chair set we have, but the back cushions above seem much shorter. Did this chair come in a 'grandpa' and 'grandma' version? Our suite is clad in a tan woollen fabric - somewhat fadsed, but very little wear. When would these have been made originally? 1960's, or later?
Hi - these are great chairs and really comfortable. These ones were made by Cintique but there were a few manufacturers in New Zealand of this style of chair. Yep you are right - some were taller through the back and wider through the seat. Most were made from the mid 60's through to the 70's.Great you have a suite - the sofa's are getting harder to find. The old wools that were used last for years - just not always the best colour!!

Hello: I have purchased a Cintique chair and I am curious if you will share your foam size/type with me. I am wanting to reinvent the chair.thanks!
Hi Sarah,Generally speaking we use 100mm thick, firm density upholstery foam on the seats and 75mm, medium density upholstery foam on the backs. That being said, we will sometimes take this down to 75mm on seats and 75 or 50mm on backs if they are a small framed chair so that proportionately it looks good. Good luck with your re-upholstery/restoration project!
