Chairs & Tables

This week we finished a few projects that are now up for sale.  

We were excited to find this Drexel Declaration Centennial dining set.  It is a beautiful fusion of modern and shaker design.  Each chair is made of hand carved solid walnut.



Recently we found this Norwegian lounge chair a couple weeks ago.  We quickly started refinishing and reupholstering it.  We chose dark chocolate brown leather to compliment the dark rosewood frame.




Lastly, I refinished a walnut side table by American of Martinsville.

Monthly Post

It's been nearly a month since our last post.  Don't worry nothing  has changed.  We've been working away on various mid century furniture projects.  Here are few highlights from the last 4 weeks.

A great recent find was this gondola sofa by Tempo furniture.  This model has been the most popular style of gondola sofa for us.  It has been exactly one year since we had our last one.  We are hoping to find someone who would like us to custom upholster it for them.

Another rare find was this Tony Paul wire shelf.  It can either be mounted to a wall or sit on a counter.  Here it is pictured with some of our favorite critters.

One of our favorite restoration projects was this pair of barrel chairs.  Here are before and after pictures.

3 Piece Meal

Here are 3 pieces that we found and developed over the last week.  

Rare walnut mid century modern executive desk from the Parallel line by Drexel.  This desk is very interesting example of American design.  The desk is finished front and back and looks even better centered in a room rather than up against a wall // Sold




 Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on creating an original slat bench design.  I just finished the second prototype.  I have learned a lot from this process and should have a final design ready for custom production available soon.

A Week in Review

Here are a few of the pieces we founded and completed this week.

Danish teak draw leaf dining table by Henning Kjaernulf.  When I found this table there was significant damage to the top.  I refinished it and was able to remove all of the damage.  Here is a picture of it staged in our dining room // Sold


A customer brought this Eames style lounge chair to us and we reupholstered it in black vinyl .

The Latest and Greatest

It has been a couple weeks since our last update.  Here are some of the pieces we have worked on recently.

We were very excited to find this pair of lounge chairs.  When I first saw them I thought they would be a set to upholster in Pendleton wool.

Here is the final result.  We are very happy with them.  The soft new wool and gray tones are a nice touch // Sold
