That isn't to say that they don't need a little love.
The overall aesthetic of them, however, is great. Bauhaus style is timeless as far as I am concerned.
To be honest, I just like me a good cantilever chair!
The chair is leather and bent steel.
Unfortunately, the underside of the leather seat, which was originally lined with a card-like substrate, has started to tear and crumble apart. Mind you, after 70+ years, I guess that is to be expected.
I have a theory on how to potentially fix this issue; since it is leather, taking the seat to a shoe repair place (I have one in mind that has always been phenomenal) to be re-stiched.
The main issue is what to do about the support.
Should I replace it with cardboard again?
If so, where do I find something like that.
I had one upholsterer suggest seeing a luggage repair place that would have something.
Or perhaps I should skip that part and replace it with something else...
I dunno. If you in the blog-o-sphere have any suggestions, send them my way!
The chairs have made a welcome addition to our entertainment room, and even Grey-dog loves them.
