Three mid-century modern furniture transformations


Buying vintage furniture has its advantages. Choose carefully and you’ll get pieces that are built to last. But let’s face it, with age comes wear and not all wear is charming – or even usable. At MidModMen+friends, we clean, rejuvenate or restore all of our offerings depending on the need. For sofas and chairs, that usually means a full makeover using high-quality fabrics and professional upholstery services. Here are three recent transformations of mid-century and Danish modern pieces. We restored the wood frames and accents on each and had them upholstered is era-appropriate fabrics. Shown left to right are:


1. Kroehler Smartset Design three-piece sectional sofa with walnut accented base. Newly upholstered in Designtex Hashtag fabric/oak colorway (fabric from Modern Fabrics) SOLD

2. Danish modern swivel chair with restored teak base (designer/maker unknown). Upholstered in a flat weave fabric in saturated orange (fabric from S.R. Harris) SOLD

3. Jens Risom Design U430 (Caribe) lounge chair circa 1949 with restored walnut frame. Upholstered in a flat weave navy fabric (fabric from S.R. Harris)

Our restorations and transformations extend to wood furniture, too, like dressers, desks, coffee tables, dining sets and credenzas. Visit our store to see what we have to offer. Browse the showcase section on our website for a sampling of current offerings.
