Recover Directors Chairs

How to Recover a Wooden Directors Chair

If your Directors Chairs are in need of a re-vamp
our Deckchair Canvas Fabrics are suitable for recovering any size of Directors Chairs.

If you would like us to make your covers for you, please see our Directors Chairs Recovery Service

Or you can cover up your tatty looking chairs with our smart Loose Covers for Directors Chairs

To ensure success with your project, we advise the following:

1. If you have existing directors chair covers, you could remove these and use as templates - it may be an idea to photograph your directors chair before removing!

2. Using your templates as copies, cut to the template following the size and stitching of your old covers, making sure that the stripes will go HORIZONTALLY across the seat and back of the chair. You will need 1.5 metres per chair for the seat and back.

3. Because our fabric is a 100% natural cotton weave, it will 'give' slightly the first time it is sat upon - this is normal and makes it more comfortable, but we advise making your new cover very slightly smaller widthways to allow for stretching (2-3 cms approx).

4. For strength and appearance, you would need to turn the edges front and back of the seat and sew along the edges ( this may not be necessary on a deckchair as the edges are not load-bearing as on a Directors Chair).

5. Some older chairs are deeper in the seat than our fabric which is approximately 45 cms wide. This means that the fabric may restrict the size of the seat from front to back.
This should not be noticeable and does not compromise safety in any way.

6. Our fabric is perfect for Directors Chairs that use a dowelling system for the seat, including Habitat Directors Chairs but not suitable for making the type of Directors Chair seat cover with many eyelets and lacing underneath the seat as a means of attachment.
Currently Directors Chairs seats are secured with dowelling rods in the sides, but the fabric on older chairs is usually tacked on underneath the seat. This is possible to do using our upholstery nails, with the chair upside down using the old holes as a guide and turning the edges to prevent fraying.

7. All our fabrics may be stitched with a domestic sewing machine.

8. HANDY TIP: If the rods are missing from the channels in your seat - we have found either wooden plant stakes from your local garden centre are perfect for the job, or dowelling may be purchased from any DIY store. Remember that the rods must be quite a lot narrower than the channels to accommodate the cloth and the rods.

Please bear in mind that our Deckchair Canvas fabric used to cover our directors chairs is 100% cotton with no synthetics. Modern dyes are used today which lack the toxic colour fasteners used in the past so they will fade quicker if left out in strong sunlight and adverse weather conditions.
The very nature of a directors chair was as an instant chair to sit in the sun - and folded away again when it rains!

Our Deckchair canvas is not suitable for heavy commercial use
