Simon, what type of wood is the chair? Woods like Poplar, Pine,etc will often take stain in a blotchy effect because of the grain density differences...so even after bleaching they may still appear blotchy, and restaining can just give you the same results if you're not attentive to the finish schedule you use...meaning using a sizeing agent, or a sealer/prestain treatment...
