Chair Haul

This week I hit quite a score.  20 chairs in one day!  Some of the chairs have already made their way into Hawthorne Vintage.  We are working quite diligently on the rest.  We are looking forward to restoring all of these wonderful chairs.

Here is a closer look at a few of the pieces.
This set of 4 Eames shell chairs are an early example of this iconic design.  They have the steel X base with cup feet rather than a zinc base with plastic feet.  Sadly someone drilled drain holes in each of the seats but they would still make a great patio set for someone.


Erik Buch's barstool design may be the most iconic modern barstool of all.  This fine example also hase rosewood footrests.


We got right to work on this Jens Risom armchair.  Many of his designs were produced with a dark wood and light fabric contrast.  That was the reason we decided to upholster this chair in a brilliant yellow fabric // Sold

 We are always on the hunt for wood frame lounge chairs.  It had been a while since we have had any.

 It is rare to find modern design furniture from Japan.  These two Japanese lounge chairs are very comfortable.  Refinishing the frames will be challenging but rewarding work.

 This Eames armshell chair has hard to find reclining caster base.  The shell is damaged beyond repair but I will save the base and wait to find a nice shell for it.

 We were thrilled to find yet another modern task chair.  This one is by George Mulhauser for Plycraft

 Rocking chairs are our favorite chairs.  Yes, this Illum Wikkelso rocking chair was produced with black paint.  It will be available once we get a fresh coat of black paint on it.

 Lastly, This pair of armchairs is by Hayes furniture but is very similar to a Swedish design by Dux.
