About the Item

Transforming a piece of Mid-Century Modern furniture is like bringing history back to life, and we take this journey with passion and precision. With over 17 years of artisanal expertise, our Los Angeles studio is a haven where vintage treasures are reborn. Here’s a glimpse into our restoration wizardry: • The Art of Transformation: We start by stripping away the old, revealing the hidden beauty beneath. It’s a bit like a glamorous makeover, where we give your furniture a fresh canvas. • Attention to Detail: We’re sticklers for detail. Whether it’s a tiny dent or a noticeable scratch, our artisans work their magic to make them vanish. Each piece undergoes meticulous hand-sanding to ensure perfection. • Wood’s Second Chance: We believe in second chances, even for wood. Our chemical treatments refine the wood, reviving its natural allure. We don’t just restore; we bring out the wood’s soul. • Design Integrity: Every piece has a story, and we respect that. We carefully examine each one for design integrity, making sure it stays true to its Mid-Century roots. • Bringing Out the Grain: Choosing the perfect stain is an art form. We handpick stains that accentuate the wood’s unique grain, adding character and charm. • Lasting Protection: To seal the deal, we apply a protective matte satin lacquer, ensuring your furniture stands the test of time. It’s not just restored; it’s fortified for the future. • Comfort Redefined: The beauty of Mid-Century Modern is timeless, but comfort should be too. We use high-density foam and the finest fabrics and leathers to give you a seat that’s as cozy as it is chic. • Dedicated to Excellence: Our promise is simple: enduring, distinctive, and comfortable furniture that becomes a cherished part of your home’s story. Your furniture’s longevity is our unwavering commitment to you. When you choose one of our restored pieces, you’re not just acquiring furniture; you’re owning a piece of history, meticulously brought back to life by our passionate artisans. Embrace the past, enjoy the present, and let our furniture be a part of your future.

  • Scandinavian Modern Scissor Lounge Chair by Folke Ohlsson for DUX
    By Folke Ohlsson, Dux of Sweden
    Located in Topeka, KS
    Handsome and iconic Scandinavian Modern Scissor lounge chair designed by Folke Ohlsson for DUX. It is in wonderful vintage condition. The wood frame has been restored; however, there may still be small signs of age. We did have to fill some rather deep flaws in the wood. The straps have been replaced with appropriate new straps. And the foam cushions are new and newly upholstered. Please see photos, circa 1950s. Now you can get all your DUX in a row!! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. This is the iconic and beautiful Scissor Lounge Chair. It was designed by Folke Ohlsson for his company DUX, Inc. purportedly in 1949. It is so incredible in its simplicity and when viewed from the side you can see immediately where it got its name. We are very excited about this wonderful chair here at our shop. Its walnut frame has been completely restored and we have replaced all the straps, which were beyond repair, with proper strapping. Plus, we have made new foam cushions and upholstered them in a fabulous black and taupe horizontal stripe fabric. Folke Ohlsson is a Scandinavian Modern Swedish furniture...
