More mid-mod wonderful-ness. This is a pair of vintage Herman Miller Eames upholstered fiberglass shell chairs. If you don't know what they are, Google or look up on ebay and then you will understand what a find these were. I was at a yardsale in midtown where I found some great Ball mason jars and when I left I was driving up the block and out of the corner of my thrifting eagle eyes I spotted these chairs. BRAKES!
My intent is to reupholster these babies but I hate to ruin the original fabric by doing so. I might just clean up the fabric.
Any ideas on what to use to clean the upholstery up? Have you found fun chairs and reupholstered them? Feel free to post in comments with photos...
I just found your blog through Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Mondays, you seem to have found some really great stuff, I love you retro style! I'm pretty new to blogging, too! I wish you the best!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous chairs! I have no skills in cleaning things like this. My only thought is possibly using a steam cleaner to see if that works. What a great find!ReplyDelete
AHHHH so jealous! I love them so much! I would not change the original upholstery. I love the color. Keep it if its in good condition. I want them!ReplyDelete
Great find - I love the color too so I'd definitely try to clean them up.ReplyDelete
JEALOUS!!! OMG did you keep them or sell them?!ReplyDelete
The seat and back of the chair ought to have enough artefact to allow you to sit for an extended hours and still feel snug. Having to sit down on virtually no artefact looks like you're sitting on a tough wood which isn't terribly pleasant. once it involves selecting between cloth and animal skin, this relies on your preference. however if you'd inquire from me, i'd advocate a mesh back for breathability. Seat are often either manufactured from cushioned mesh or animal skin.ReplyDelete
