Title: Pair of chairs
Post by: CW on April 19, 2015, 03:31:58 PM
This is a set of chairs that will require more than a recover. There are cracks, loose joints, loose springs, worn wood finish, and a broken leg. But I wasn't surprised, and always up for a challenge. :)

On another note, now that I found, what I believe to be, the original fabric underneath, I'm curious what decade these chairs were built. Can anyone recommend a book that covers this?

I'd say it's a 60's reproduction.

I was confused between the avocado green and the style of the chair, so that makes sense.

Your a Trooper!
Its a great study you did and excellent time for future planning of this step or that.

Good day there
