The craftswoman is Janine from Salvage Love. She found these 1962 vintage Leg-o-matic chairs at a local thrift store and was smart enough to snap them up. Though, her description of trying to unfold them for the first time reminds me of when I was gifted with an old SX-70 camera in college. Luckily, she flipped the chairs over and saw that there were instructions included.

Her upholstery update certainly modernized the vintage lines of the chairs without interfering with their innate charm.
