Good Questions: Where Do I Take These Chairs to Get Stripped?
After many months of being an avid “lurker” to the Chicago site I finally have something that I’d like to ask:
I recently purchased what I believe to be a pair of authentic Eames LCM chairs for $15 at a local thrift. An awesomely spectacular deal , however there are some condition problems. The black lacquer finish on one of the chairs has rubbed and flaked off and continues to do so. The black lacquer on the second chair is in really great shape, however there is a small nick/chip to the wood near the back on the top portion of the seat…(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.
Any help anyone could provide would really be appreciated!
Congrats on the excellent find! We’re a little stumped on this one, though. Our first thought was to find an upholsterer who has someone on staff that also does stripping/re-coating work. We need reader input and recommendations! Anyone?
