Before & After – Fler Daybed

I was lucky enough to pick up two Fler rocking chairs and a Fler daybed from gumtree.

The ad had no picture, it just said ‘daybed and rocking chairs for sale’ so I hedged my bets and sent them a message asking if the frame was wood and old. To my surprise the answer was yes – they still had the original Fler stickers on too.

I purchased both. If you don’t already know, please be warned that upholstery may cost more than you think (I didn’t realise it was so expensive before). I got a few quotes to cover both (including new foam for the cushions) and the quotes were close to $2,000. I ended up choosing A1 Chair Upholstery at Lonsdale as they were cheaper (still over $1,000!) and George and Christine have done a great job.
