After the springs are tied, inspect them to make sure they’re upright. Go back and retie any springs that are leaning. What if I don’t have coil springs in my tight seat? With a tight seat like the Louis chair, you may come across a few other constructions that require a slightly different order of operations. As discussed in the previous chapter, this chair originally came with a layer of webbing topped by the padding. If this is the type of chair you have, follow the instructions for attaching webbing but attach it to the topside of the frame instead of the bottom.
1. Jute webbing provides the foundation for the springs and all the padding on the seat, not to mention the sitter. With the chair flipped over, determine the maximum number of strips, without overlap, that will fit horizontally and vertically on the bottom edges of the chair. My hand is the same width as the webbing, so I use it as a measuring device. 2. Evenly space the strips of webbing on each side of the frame. With the webbing connected to the roll, attach the cut end with 4 or 5 staples to the center of the wooden bar where it’s strongest.
As you draw, be mindful of how you’d like the pattern placed on the chair and remember that the nap of the velvet should feel smooth as your hand moves from the back to the front and top to bottom of the chair. Pucker-Free Fabric Palms, not fingertips. When pulling fabric to the appropriate tightness, smooth out the excess with the palm of your dominant hand while pulling the edge of the fabric with the palm of your nondominant hand. Avoid pulling fabric with fingertips, which creates dimples from uneven tightness.
