Vintage aluminum office chair
I needed a little resale therapy today, so I went to one of the junk stores in town, and brought this home for $6.
It's made by Goodform, and from what I can find on the net, made anywhere between the 1930's-1950's. And apparently I got a bargain!
I have no idea how to restore aluminum, so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd sure appreciate it. I was going to start with some mild dish soap and a paste of baking soda for the heavier crud.
The ?rubber arms are in OK shape...there's some scuffs and scratches and dings, but it's not horrible.
To reupholster the seat, would a regular furniture upholsterer be able to do this, or would an auto seat place be a better choice? I haven't figured out how to remove the seat and back, but it looks like I'll be able to without much trouble. Now my only decision is to go with a similar perforated vinyl or leather.
