Advice for Stripping Foam?

Q:I bought this chair at a thrift store and I love it. But I need some guidance as to how I should approach stripping the foam from the unfinished part of the wood where there was a seat cushion. I’m assuming I need to strip the entire chair and re-stain it? Any advice would be much appreciated from you and fellow readers. It’s a great chair in wonderful structural condition and I want to do it right.
