Here's What's New

We spent most of this week upholstering this high back sofa that I recently found.  We were glad to get that gross floral fabric off of it.  We found some of the original fabric while we were stripping the sofa.  It was very similar to the new fabric that we used.

Our second new offering is this model 74 recliner designed by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin.

Lastly we found a matching coffee table & side table set by Heggen of Norway.

The Good Stuff

This week we have finished some wonderful projects.  Recently I found a set of coffee & side tables by Grete Jalk for Poul Jeppesen.  We refinished them all and now they are paired with the Grete Jalk lounge chair that we currently have available at Hawthorne Vintage.
Our second project of the week was upholstering an American mid century sofa.  It was originally made in Portland in the 1960s by B.P. John.  It's super comfy!

Tables & Chairs

This week we finished a few projects and found a few more.  Our first project was a Norwegian rocking chair that had been painted blue and upholstered in floral fabric.  We refinished the wood frame and upholstered the chair in a modern grey fabric.  We also made an ottoman to match it.  It sold as soon as it was finished.

One of my finds this week was a rare lane clover coffee table.  I have never seen this model in person before.  It is in excellent condition!

These benches have been very popular for us this year.  We found and upholstered this on this weekend.

Lastly, I found some chairs that need a little cleaning up
 Danish lounge chair in the style of Ib Kofod-Larsen.

 Beech lounge chair in the style of Folke Ohlsson.

Pair of Zenith fiberglass side chair shells by Charles Eames for Herman Miller.

What's New?

This week we stayed busy refinishing, upholstering, and finding new pieces.  Here are a few of our newest pieces that we put up for sale at Hawthorne Vintage this week.

This week we found, refinished, and upholstered this Adrian Pearsall style bench.  We recovered it in a brand new pattern by Pendleton Woolen Mills.  It sold quickly.

A surprise find this week was a set of 6 executive chairs by Charles Pollock for Knoll.  This design is one of the most popular 1960s executive chair designs ever produced.  We found the danish teak dining table this week as well.

Last but not least we recovered a pair of walnut stools by Dillingham.

Weekend in Review

 This weekend I found quite a few pieces but only two of them are now available to the public.  Here they are.

Walnut bi-level tambour desk by Glenn of California.  This desk is very rare.  I was shocked to find it at all much less in such great original condition.

I also found a custom made walnut lounge chair (left).  We made cushions for it with the same fabric that we used for the Grete Jalk chair that is sitting next to it.

2 Down, 2 to Go

This weekend we finished two projects and found two more great projects pieces.

 Pair of Benny Linden rocking chairs.  The refinished teak frames came out with a beautiful red tone.
The deep blue fabric compliments the wood nicely.

 This Dux style lounge chair was in horrible condition when we found it.  We put a lot of work into it and custom upholstered it for a client.

 Danish teak lounge chair by Grete Jalk for France & Son.  We are currently upholstering new cushions for it.

Rare leather & rosewood lounge chair and ottoman by Fredrik  Kayser for Vatne Mobler. We will be conditioning the leather and re-stuffing the cushions before putting it up for sale.

New Space // Hawthorne Vintage

We are excited to announce that we just added a third space at Hawthorne Vintage.  We filled it with a beautiful teak dining set and wall art.  We are looking forward to offering even more inventory on a regular basis.

We also have some wonderful offerings in our other two spaces.

4 new pieces

This weekend I did a lot of shopping.  I bought a couple of dining sets, a sofa, and a few smaller items.  Besides shopping we also worked on some projects.  Here are four projects we just finished.

Solid walnut lounge chair by Gunlocke newly upholstered in Pendleton wool fabric.

A few weeks ago I found this large solid teak hatch.  I had a custom steel base made for it.  Now it is a coffee table.

The two pieces that we just finished that are in this picture are the orange lounge chair and the grey loveseat.

Weekend Round Up // Late September 2015

This weekend we did some shopping, refinishing and upholstery.  Our three new pieces that we are now offering is the tension pole shelving unit, Ganddal Mobelfabrik teak and afromosia coffee table, and a Norwegian rock n rest recliner with a matching handmade ottoman.

Before & After: Danish Sofa

Last weekend I found another Danish walnut frame sofa.  We got right to work reupholstering and refinishing it.  We decided to alter the cushion configuration to add more back support.  We chose a yellow fabric to contrast with the dark walnut frame.  It is now available at Hawthorne Vintage
