1950’s Knoll Barcelona Chair Restoration

Posted on January 29th, 2014

Our client inherited an original Knoll Barcelona chair from Grandparents in New York. It was in a bit of a state, but with a little TLC it is now fit for any home again.
All of the leather is original with new colour added. The crumbling latex cushion has been replaced with new heavyweight latex foam, and we made new straps for the seat of the chair. It’s looking great again now!

New straps are now available for sale at our Ebay store http://stores.ebay.co.uk/The-Leather-Surgeons

We can also supply a fitting kit and full instructions.

The Chair arrived with 60 years of wear and tear!
