We started with a couple of very thrashed 60’s era Eames loungers
Both went through the full restoration process
Then we ‘shagged’ ’em!!

Jason requested something different for his Montana cabin, a little more worn with a club chair look.
We started with really rough 1950’s rosewood panels, after many hours they came out great, all aluminum parts received a ‘Dirty Brass’ finish reminiscent of the Warrior. Last in the puzzle were the cushions upholstered in a gorgeous Townsend hide.
Henry Ford said “you can have it in any color you want, as long as it is black.” I’m sure if Charles & Ray were alive today they would say “you can have it in any color you want, as long as you enjoy it” The world doesn’t have to be upholstered in black leather.
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
