Another Eames Knockoff Gets Recovered

I recently picked up a second Eames knockoff bent plywood chair and ottoman, similar to this project from several years ago 

The build quality of this chair seems better than the Plycraft one. The chair's original leather was faded, but not consistently, so I went back to my stash of barkcloth and recovered this chair too.

 Here's the result:


  1. NICE!!! I am coming over with the BF and the cats! LOL

    1. Isn't it great? I wish it was easier to find barkcloth this good. I think this was the last of J and O Fabric's supply of this color.

  3. Wow, that looks so much more fun than the standard black leather. You did a great job Uncle Atom! I wish I had your attention to detail and ability to be handy like this - your stuff always turns out great!

    1. Aw shucks MB, you could do this. I'm only intimidated by a sewing machine. I did all this with an electric staple gun.
