Local Furniture Maker

I have a set of chairs that I love and they are extremely hard to come by and I would like to see how much it would cost to get 6 or so made as copies. They are all wood with a small pad.

Mine done have the back pad - mine are solid wood.

it will cost you an arm and a leg to get them done from scratch. Do you love them enough to spend over a K on them?

Yes! Without a doubt. Its hard to find a matching set and the two I did find were more than that.

Some of the stuff is so simple and comfortable and some of it is just weird. Why they don't still make some of these designs is beyond me.

not sure what is wrong with your current set, but I do have a good friend who has a furniture store in Morton Grove and I am sure he know people in the business. Few years ago I was thinking of getting new chairs and he suggested I simply redo the upholstery.

We eventually bought a new kitchen set from him, but that option was very reasonable. Let me know if you want his info.
