“A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.” ― Seneca
One of the nicest gifts you can give is something you already own that has been restored and given a new lease on life. I often have clients ask me about restoring their valued investment, a leather furniture item that is much loved but somewhat the worse for wear. Sometimes even the most ordinary looking of armchairs can have sentimental value, or is just so comfortable that the family just don't want to part with it. This armchair fell into that category, and was restored as a gift to family members from its elderly and beneficent owner.
