On this week's episode of "What's Alex working on?" I restored a mid century icon. An original Herman Miller fiberglass shell chair. This was in a little bit of rough shape. The chair had been loved my many people in its life and showed it. The base was rough, the mounts dried and cracked, and marker all over it. I first sanded it with 150 grit, then 220, then 400, then 600 wet, and finally 1000wet. Wear a respirator when working with fiberglass!! Katy ordered a new Eiffel Tower base and mounts. I restored the fiberglass with a gel coat wax resin, that won't discolor or fade, but I had to wait 12 to 24 hours for additional coats. After 4 coats, I took out the polisher and buffed it to a shine. I used Jb Kwik to remount the rubber shock mounts and polished up the new chrome base. This came out great!! Thank you @andresjmuniz and @moemoe83 for the gift!!

CHAIR OF THE CENTURY. Time Magazine named this iconic chair the best design of the 20th Century. The DCM version – Dining Chair-Metal (base) – was designed by Charles and Ray Eames based on an earlier collaboration with Eero Saarinen, and was introduced in 1951. It's a simple but elegant piece, with molded birch seat and back attached to a steel frame. This is an EARLY VERSION with a black coated frame. The DCM mark is embossed under the seat, along with a stamped number (9 52). Everything is in top condition: wood, frame, rubber shock mounts and original glider feet.

Нейтральная основа в купе с цветовыми акцентами, винтажной мебелью и активной геометрией делает этот интерьер нескучным.

DUMPED & DITCHED
Discarded furniture is the starting point for every journey at dumped and ditched.
I see past the dents, the damage and the dirt. I see the beauty, the hope and the potential each piece holds. With craftsmanship and dedication I transform old furniture into unique and distinct objects.
Preserving characteristics while giving furniture a contemporary context is the at the core of my work.
