Restored Mid-Century Modern Plycraft White George Mulhauser Mr. Chair & Ottoman

About the Item

This listing is for one chair with matching ottoman. The price you see is for one chair with ottoman. There are two chairs and ottoman sets available. Opt to buy one set or both chairs with ottomans by selecting the quantity at check out. The two chairs have slight differences. Read the description below and let us know if you want chair A or B when you order. Mid-Century Modern Mr. Chairs designed by George Mulhauser. There’s something indescribably awesome about these Mulhauser chairs in tufted white upholstery. Cool, casual and comfortable in their skin. Anywhere they go, is exactly where they’re supposed to be. If these chairs became sentient, they would ask for a highball and a cigarette. What you’re looking at are two, early, very similar George Mulhauser “Mr Chairs”. They were procured from the same estate, but are most certainly from different production runs a year or two apart. Both chairs and ottomans swivel on 5-star metal bases and share similar dimensions. Each chair rocks back and returns to upright against the tension of a metal coil spring. The differences are as follows. Chair “A” — Upholstered in tufted white naugahyde — Back cushion is locked in with welting — Metal bases are painted brown along sides — Slightly more height on chair and ottoman stems — Two-position, double-buttons on headrest straps Chair “B” — Upholstered in tufted white vinyl — Back cushion is screwed in (has piping but not locked in by welt) — Metal bases are painted black along sides — Single-button, single-position on headrest straps We’re certain you won’t find a more spectacular set of Mr. Chairs anywhere. Our in-house restoration team did a complete tear-down and rebuild to ensure every inch was inspected and delicately restored. A few loose buttons were retied and the fabric was completely rejuvenated to gleaming bright white using our proprietary techniques. Although the wood backs and under-arms were already in good condition, we went the extra distance to make sure every scratch was mitigated. 5 coats of hand buffed finish were applied to the walnut and new feet were attached on bases to finalize the restoration. Chair (A) 38.5” Wide x 38” Deep x 39.5” High (14.5” seat height) Ottoman (A) 25.25” Wide x 19.25” Deep x 13.25” High

  • '2' Restored Vintage Witco Conquistador Tiki Throne Chairs in Original Red Fur
    By Witco, William Westenhaver / Witco
    Located in Chattanooga, TN
    Pair of restored Witco Conquistador tiki throne chairs in original red fur. These chairs are absolutely wild in the best kind of way. The original red fur fabric has a thick pile. This bright red upholstery adds drama to the high-back, iron cladded, hand-carved throne. As if all that isn’t enough.. the arms are carved like gorilla paws. Each throne chair is crowned with two hand-carved conquistador heads donning their iconic helmets. These highly collectible and hard-to-find thrown chairs were born of the jet-set era. The 1960s was the golden age of air travel and Americans were absolutely fascinated with “Exotica.” Ephemera from exotic tropical lands around South Asia were all the rage and gave birth to an explosion of tiki motifs in popular American culture. We have four of these chairs available, two arm chairs and two armless chairs. This listing is for just the two armchairs. The two armless chairs are sold separate. We also have the matching dining table, sold separate. We have other Witco items available including conquistador chairs in new leopard upholstery, Witco end table, and Witco cat...
