Good Questions: Reupholstering Modern Chairs?

Hello AT,

We were lucky to inherit a pair of Knoll Brno chairs and 2 Saarinen tulip chairs. The fabric on the Brno chairs is in sad shape.

Can anyone suggest a place where we can get them redone in leather? Would any upholsterer recommended on this site specialize in that type of work for modern chairs? What about the Saarinen chairs? Is there any place that restores (or way to restore) the finish on plastic/fiberglass mid-century chairs ?

Thanks for any suggestions, Eric in Brooklyn

We suspect that upholsterers are prepared to deal with all kinds of upholstery - including modern furniture and leather.

We stand behind our recommended upholsterers and they should tell you themselves whether yes or no. For fun, we would also go to the source, Knoll, and ask them directly what or who they would recommend. Their number is (212) 343-4000. (Thanks, Eric!) MGR
