Reupholstery Options For Vintage Chair?

Reupholstery Options For Vintage Chair?

Q: I picked up this 1970's vinyl chair and my husband asked whether we could ditch the padded arms and neck-roll when we get it reupholstered. I inspected the arms and back: the structure is sound and straight. Alas no lovely sculptural scoops. Do we keep the outrageous padding and buckles for the fun of it or do we strip it down and pay homage to its inspiration? If it helps you visualize, I'm thinking a medium to light grey suede.
