I have another chair I bought off Craiglist for another purpose; now it's in my living room where the Poang chair used to be (can_this_chair_be_saved.jpg). Even though the original leather is obviously shot, I really love it - it's incredibly comfy, and originally I had planned to embark on another slipcovering project to spruce it up. But the more it sits there, the more I wish I could just restore it to just like it was. However, I have no idea what the ballpark figure would be for a thing like that. Obviously if I went for leather that'd jack the price up considerably, so I might not opt for that. But in general: what could I expect to pay to recover a chair like this? Thank you for reading all this! :) And thanks for a great, inspiring blog! -Tracy
Tracy, we recommend you give the folks over at LeatherDoctor a call, they specialize in leather repair/restoration, service the Los Angeles region and can be contacted via email or phone. We heard there was another doctor specializing in leather out there, but we've heard he's retired to become an actor. Any other leather daddies...ummm...doctors out there that you can recommend for Tracy's chair?
