How To: Restore Eames Chairs

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.

Check out this tutorial to learn more about how to re-build these bucket chairs, and where to source the materials for construction, and how it all works!

Learn how to fix and restore moulded plywood chairs in this tutorial, also on Plastolux.
