1998 Vitra Eames lounge chair with new shock mounts fitted. The mounts themselves did not actually fail, it was the plywood and glue that could not take the strain when two people sat on this chair at the same time.

Eames lounge chair with new shock mounts fitted for the first time since it was made. I particularly like the tan leather, which complements the gently faded rosewood. Like most of these chairs there is a story that is revealed when it is dismantled. This one was owned by a Herman Miller employee, someone who upholstered these for a living in fact. It was made in Germany in the late 1960s and was reupholstered in the UK in the early 1980s. It is a family heirloom, owned now by the son of the original owner.

Eames DSR-1 shell chairs. These came in for repair a couple of weeks’ ago. All the shock mounts had failed because someone fitted dowel leg bases, the type popular these days. They might’ve look pretty but the bases caused the mounts to fail. These are institutional chairs and probably had stacking bases originally but those are long gone. New shock mounts and Vitra Eiffel Tower bases have been fitted and they now sit level. For more information on restoration and spare parts DM or follow the link in my profile.

In on the 7th out on the 10th 670 lounge chair repair. New mounts have been fitted and some work done to the seat cushion. Otherwise a light clean, that is all. I love the figuring on this one. For more information on restoration and spare parts DM or follow the link in my profile

All the Eames Drexler books have been sold now I’d like to say a big thank you to the MoMa Design Store in New York City for pricing this book at over £500. I was able to sell all my stock in a few hours at £30 each after having them for more than ten years. A special big thx to the person who prices their old books!!! For all those who enquired but did not get a copy please take a moment to visit my website (link in my profile) where there are lots of other design related reference books.

MoMA’s price: £500 my price £30 maybe they need to offer a price match? The Drexler Eames book is very good, still one of the best on the subject but it’s not a £500 book. Anyone interested in a copy for £30 please DM me or follow the link in my profile. All sold now

This Eames 670 seat cushion had a broken back panel. The cushion has now been fitted with an OEM panel exactly like the one that split. Other than that, and little attention to the buttons to improve longevity of the leather, it has been cleaned and polished. The chair was made in 2014 so is this a repair or a restoration?

A before and after. This chair, the dowel leg chair with wide mounts, that is, did not ever exist; it is a false construct. Converting them to a DSX with new shock mounts and H bases makes them stronger and more durable. I like them now.

Over the weekend of the 5th / 6th June this Mr Chair broke. It reclined for its last time and that was it. It would not return to its upright position. That is how it is in the second picture. The first one shows it after a new torsion cylinder was fitted. It is now upright and fully functioning again. Today, two weeks’ later exactly, the chair is good to go. The Bassick Flo Tilt is an easy DIY repair. Any chair with a Bassick Flo Tilt can be easily fixed without special tools or knowledge. One does need the right part though… For more information on restoration and spare parts DM or follow the link in my profile
