From restoring heirloom furniture to its former glory to giving modern pieces a fresh, personalized touch, we take pride in our ability to transform upholstery visions into reality. We have the benefit of hindsight to see what mistakes in manufacturing techniques were made over the years, and learn from the experience. If we see a repair technique or material that will improve the strength and life of furniture, without changing the design intent or appearance, we incorporate these improvements into our repairs, if the Owner of the furniture approves the change. We are familiar with the various materials from an engineering standpoint- this is critical to making appropriate and effective repairs. For instance, we understand the differences between thermoset plastics and thermoplastics, the various adhesives from aliphatic glues to resorcinols, epoxies, and others, and what structural designs and improvements are necessary for repairs to be effective, to prevent the mistakes of the past, from being the burdens of the future. What we don’t know, we can research, using engineering design handbooks, and expert craftsmen.

Herman Miller Eames Chairs
Designers Charles and Ray Eames' Lounge Chair has been manufactured by licensees Herman Miller and Vitra, and imitated for decades by numerous other manufacturers. As part of this design-- attaching the back to the base--Eames avoided the use of bolts, choosing to mate the plywood pieces by gluing a rubber "shock mount" between them. We see too often the dismay and grief when this expensive chairs' back attachment fails, and the owner discovers the large community of similarly disappointed owners. But don't fear, we can restore such damage almost invisibly and more. But it requires intensive efforts by our European craftsmen. We rebuild the plywood from the inside out, saving the outer layer of the veneer to retain the original flitch veneer pattern of the lounge chair. Our proprietary solution to the shock mount defect is warrantied for 15 years, and we are the only company to include warranty against breakage of the back shell resulting from a failure of any of the four shock mounts we replace during that period. In contrast, neither Herman Miller nor Vitra has ever warrantied the shock mounts or anything else on a new Lounge chair for more than 3-1/2 years, today for only 3 years.
We've repaired 100's of Eames' Lounge Chairs globally and our European craftsman have the experience and knowledge to repair your chair. Discover how we can support your Eames Lounge Chair repairs and get your timeless classic back to its original shape, comfort and style.
