Once that is completed, you can then focus on the seat’s support system. You will use sagless or jute webbing for your support system as this style chair doesn’t have springs. Once you’ve attached your sagless or jute webbing to the top of the seat, you’ll start attaching the fabric. To do this, you will use a cardboard tack strip, which goes on before the padding. Using a cardboard tack strip is not common when reupholstering chairs, but is a technique used for this frame style.
Once you have the fabric positioned at the back of the seat, ensuring the backside of the fabric is facing down towards the sagless, you’ll place the tack strip over the fabric against the back edge of the seat and staple it down.
