We pulled this piece from 2nd floor storage and want to refinish and put a new woven leather on; one that would be good as original or better. We of course went to Edelman Leathers. We do lover our wovens! I think we are going to put more of a burnished red/gold leaf rubbed in finish on wood. My guess would be we will probably go for the gusto and do above reddish woven leather. HOT!
