Daughter #3 loves Mid Century Modern style. She has long wanted an Eames Lounge chair, but with prices in the thousands, it wasn’t in her budget. However, she found this 1963 Eames knock off made by Plycraft on Craigslist. It is from 1963 and knockoffs were much better made back then!
This chair still had the original leather upholstery.
So she bought a leather cowhide and we went to work. We replaced all the old foam.
SIL was a fantastic help.
I’m no expert when it comes to upholstery. I still can’t believe she trusted me to help with this. We sure learned a lot! It was scary cutting into that expensive leather.
The buttons were scary at first, but not nearly as bad as I feared.
And look at it now! We did a great job!
Daughter #3 did a great job on the wood restoration. And SIL found the perfect replacement bolts.
Isn’t it beautiful?
I am going to making welting to go around the edges, but that might have to wait just a bit with everything going on.
Have a great day!
