More often than not an eames lounge and ottoman arrives at the workshop and the owner believes that all it needs is a little bit of oil and a tune up. After a look around their mind is changed by seeing some of the stunning examples we have at the shop. A little bit more than a rub with tung oil is required to achieve this absolutely perfect standard.
Brazilian rosewood, chestnut leather, polished aluminum, hours & hours.
Strength, integrity and value restored
“I want something with a very 70’s look” said Sue B.
Look no further Daisy Duke
Brazilian rosewood and all metal restored then mad cushions installed, job very well done.
“Now those duke boys, just don’t know what they sat their-selves into.”
Purchased in 1965 by Al Kaufman & Jay Timmons Hiebert was a 5000 sq.’ cabinetry shop located on Yukon Ave Torrance Southern California.
In 1968 the company built & moved to a new 150,000 sq.’ plant on Telo Ave. A few years later (1981) Hiebert expanded again and moved to a new 475,000 sq.’ facility in Carson. At that time they were the largest wood manufacturer of casegoods and wood systems in the country with 1,000 cabinet workers.
For decades the lounge set below was used by our family until finally coming to rest in a garage.
After many hours of careful restoration the end result would do Al and Jay’s legacy proud i would say.
Many many hours of hand stitching and the final result is far from boring
Who remembers Barbara Woodhouse? This kind of reminded me of her skirt.”S….I….T”!!
Now its just fresh n easy, ready for a dog to jump all over!
Its a restorers joy when a client drops off a ‘junker’
Imagine all the parties this old banger has been through…
How many kids have spun around and around while Mum shouts “Someones gonna get hurt”
How many dogs have been shooed down or cats caught a nap.
Who gets it for the Super Bowl or the World Cup final.
Or just Dad asleep with the sunday paper.
Family memories, for generations.
Of all the things you own what stays with you for a lifetime?
Rusty, funky and ready for land fill
We get them in the rough and turn them to diamonds
Our sandblast and powder coat process is second to none, these will stand the test of time and mother nature.
No one comes close, nobody.
Another full restoration completed perfectly.
It feels like a maternity ward at the shop this week, last count we have six Womb lounge chairs and a Womb Settee all being restored and upholstered.
Hands down the brightest one of the bunch is this leather copper tone example.
We just had to shoot it in sunlight.
Not to say that this one isn’t kinda mental as well.
Arrived kinda boring and left…………………
“All hail the lizard king”
