    Cool. Probably a good market for "retrofying" used stuff.

    I really like both of those! Good work! I'd be interested to see the before pictures. Good luck with your business.

    Why not take the second one and copy the metal guts and re-cover in other fabrics? The wood framed one looks like it might be a bit more complicated.

    The logistics of the furniture manufacturing business (which has to be done overseas to be competitive) is daunting. For now this is a pleasurable hobby and if I sell something, great.

    Very interesting hobby. Is it difficult to source useable pieces for rehab?
