Did you know there are different types of chair springs?

Three types of chair springs

Coil Springs 

Coil springs are secured onto jute webbing, rails or onto a wooden base.

The top of the springs are tied together with jute twine, &/or sewing onto hessian.

Use a large curved needle for sewing jute webbing. 

Zig Zag springs 

Also known as sinuous, serpentine or no-sag springs.

These are installed onto a frame with spring clips. The spring is usually longer than the width of your frame so it has a crown/arch. 

Tie the springs together in two or three spaces with jute twine, then cover the springs with hessian before adding the foam

Tension springs

These are often found on mid century chairs.

The springs are approx 10% smaller that the frame span so that the spring stretches across.

For a tight seat (ie: foam and fabric is stapled onto the frame) cover the springs with hessian before adding the foam.

For a loose seat (ie: you have loose cushion seating), cover the springs with quilted lining
