Discover in 9 steps some of the secrets of making a GN chair comfortable and refined.

Step 1

STRAPPING IN FULL


The chair is back feet in the air,
resting on the seat and armrests.

Jute straps crisscross in full
(no empty space) , forming a
solid base to receive the springs.
The webbing ensures solidity of
the whole of the seat.

Step 2

INSTALLING SPRINGS

The location of the springs is very important : they are the ones that provide the flexibility and maintaining the shape of a seat. The springs are poses in order to cover the entire space of the seat without touching, in order to avoid the squeak. Once stiff (cross linked with the aid of a rope), the springs are covered with strong canvas.

Step 3

INSTALLING A HEAVY CANVAS

The webbing used to form the
base on which rests the filling.

Laying laces keeps the fiber
in place in the next step.

Step 4

LAYING THE FIBER

Handfuls of fiber are placed in
the laces and should be distributed
in a homogeneous manner across the seat.

After being installed under lace,
the fiber is chard, that is to say,
airy and open to the hand, which
helps give it its flexibility and its
dynamics.

The upholsterer verifies with
the flat of the hand pressing
everywhere to insure that
there is no hollow parts.

Step 5

PACKING & SCORING

This step is to trap the fiber in a
canvas embourrure, giving the
general shape of the future fittings.

The score is designed to keep
the fiber in place, forming the
bottom of the seat.

Step 6

STICHING

The procedure of stitching is to
pass a succession of points back
and forth, to ensure soundness of
the pad and give it its final shape.

Step 7

MISE EN BLANC

The introduction of a layer of
elancrin and a white linen is used
to erase the hollow nozzle.

Step 8

INSTALLING THE FABRIC

A thick layer of cotton wadding isi placed before the final fabric, to make a perfectly regular trim and to protect the fabric. It is only after all of these steps that the fabric can be implemented.

Step 9

FINISHES

Finally the finishing nails or double piping, and we end with the jaconas, a canvas that hides the seat straps underneath.

A chair made ​​in this we can say has a life span of thirty years with normal daily use.
