Found the last piece of the puzzle

I just talked to Heidi at Mid-Century Furniture Warehouse in Philly and she says she has some Goodform armchairs left.  Can't wait to pick one up in June!


  1. I did a search yesterday, and Heidi's prices are great, especially compared with some I saw online. Yikes! Are you going to do the reupholstery yourself?

  2. I KNOW. These things don't come cheap.

    Yep, it's a pretty easy reupholster job. The fabric gets clamped to a removable seat and back plate by metal tabs. All you need is a flathead screwdriver and some adhesive.

  3. Here's someone's description of upholstering with some tips...

  4. fantastic! thanks! i've been using this to help me as well as some advice from Robert of Modernicus

  5. Youngstown, Ohio!!! Look at that, baby - we used to make stuff. I think that was the company my grandfather used to work for.
