Have an Eames chair that needs fixing? Or, want to cut your budget in half by restoring old chairs found online or from a second hand store? Plastolux features some really great tutorials on how to re-mount chairs, where to purchase shock mounts, bases, and how to shine them up nicely. See more photos and learn more after the jump!

I would hope that these chairs would never reach a landfill, but knowing that they can be fixed and all of the products are made easily available is reassuring. The write-up is really thorough, and will hopefully motivate more to fix their chairs as opposed to deeming them doomed to the landfill.
