Kroehler sofa - chair - mid-century - reupholstered
DRAMATICALLY REVIVED 1950s KROEHLER SOFA + CHAIR
When you have a reputation for appreciating – and then saving – exceptionally built vintage modern furniture, sometimes things land at your doorstep. A local fan reached out about this sofa and chair set from Kroehler circa 1950s, hoping we could save them. The upholstery on both pieces were worn to the nub. But the frames were built to last, so we took on the challenge. More accurately, we handed the challenge over to our partners at KL Upholstery, which expertly stripped, stuffed and re-skinned these gentle giants using an ocean blue woven fabric with a soft hand feel. They enhanced the original tailoring, including extensive box stitching with button tufts. Now this set is ready for the next voyage.
