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 http://atomicuncle.blogspot.com/2011/12/project-plycraft-chair-gets-bargain.html
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.
NICE!!! I am coming over with the BF and the cats! LOLReplyDelete
Fun! I love the fabric.ReplyDelete
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.Delete
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!ReplyDelete
Aw shucks MB, you could do this. I'm only intimidated by a sewing machine. I did all this with an electric staple gun.Delete
Swanky as always! Nice job!ReplyDelete
