I finished the 2nd Eero Saarinen chair last night. I just want to polish the chrome legs before I am ready to ship them off. They are truly stunning and I am happy I could work with them. I have seen these chairs in tweed and let me tell you, the velvet is a lot less office like and definitely richer than the tweed fabrics! These will make a lovely addition to your home or even small office. The upholstery is in amazing condition with only the teeniest signs of wear. The foam in the seat backs are definitely in less than stellar condition, but under normal wear, they should last a long time before it has to be dealt with. They are very comfy and a nice sturdy chair. If you are regionally to me, I welcome you to meet up and have a look at any of my furnishings before you buy! I totally enjoy saving them and finding them new homes! Click the photo to scroll through the pics!
Things have been busy on the personal end the last few weeks so my projects have been suffering. I did pick up a super awesome matched pair of Knoll, Eero Saarinen designed executive arm chairs in fabulous olive velvet! They are awaiting some new seat foam which I am ready to get moving on so hopefully will have them ready to list soon! Behind them, you will see an adjustable slat bench! It is already stripped so I just need to do some sanding and thinking I will teak or Danish oil finish it.
Our family is bracing for a collective bargaining event with my husband's job at Verizon which will be hitting the fan in a few days. My part time job cannot carry our monthly bills, so if he is out long it will have a huge affect on our daily lives. If there is anything in the shop you are eyeing up, please, this would be a great time to commit! Thank you for your support during this trying time! xo Malissa
