Easy job.
Just 2 questions
1. The vinyl is smooth, and has no grain to it. What to get?
2. Foam firmness. I am thinking firm, like 45lb. For seats.

When bidding commercial jobs price is always most important. Firm foam would be a good idea.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

I keep a 30 yd. roll of black vinyl in stock. Smooth grain. It might vary a little from one roll to the next. I buy whatever the supplier currently has a promotional price on. Usually around $7.95 yd.

Most salons want black. If they want another color, the price goes up significantly.

Since I only stock 35lb. and 50lb. foam, I go with 50.

My supplier calls the grade 18-45 for a semi firm seat. Open up and see what was there before. I have the sample foams that supplier's give you upon request.   I ask the client to sit on both the 45 + 65 then ask them to sign off on the one they like. 
My opinion I would recommend what we use here from this supplier the 45 - the 65 is for bench seating.

Be careful saying "easy job". I've had salon chairs,message tables etc...become a loosing proposition because I didn't allow enough time for all the disassembly and a few rusted/bent bolts.

If it is an upscale salon, show them some samples of Crypton. I've used a fair bit of it for the hospital here.They have some nice patterns and solids.

You're right Darren. I shouldn't say easy job. Hardly ever is.

This salon wants to just replace seats to buy some time. I imagine she has plans for down the road. But I quoted her a price for 4 New seats that would be less than buying one new chair.
