Ideas for how to repair vintage Thornet chair with exposed upholstery edge and raw wood?


I found this broken chair missing a back on the curb. With it was a lone extra bottom cushion which fits perfectly as a replacement back. However, it’s surface is stained unfinished wood and has exposed leather upholstery edges.I am a novice in this area and am wondering if anyone has any good ideas on how to repair these pieces into a visually appealing and functional chair.I tried to look for solutions online and didn’t see any options that maintained the midcentury design on the style of this chair. I thought of somehow adding a fabric border over the staples and adding brads/tacks but that seems to transform the chair away from its sleek/modern look.Thanks in advance! via /r/DIY
