Hepcats Evolution

When we started our blog about 6 years ago, our focus was on sharing our mid century decor collection and restoration techniques. Over the years, we’ve evolved and became more diverse in our collection and what we are involved with. Because of this, Hepcat Restorations no longer represents who we are. We are now rebranding ourselves as Hepcats Haven. Hepcats Haven will showcase a broader time period of collecting and restoration of items from the 1940’s-1980’s.  We’ve expanded to photoshoot location booking and prop rentals.  However, we are no longer offering restoration services.

Thanks to all of you who have followed us through our many adventures and shared your thoughts. We hope you continue to join us in this new journey.

Vintage Couch & Chair Discovered

Once we got home it was late and I took a quick pic of them.

I was cruising Craigslist (as usual) when what did I spy? A dusty rose-colored frieze covered couch/futon and chair! It was way the hell down in Fresno California (3 hours one way!). We went down there with hopes of being able to add these to our collection.

Look at the design on this frieze fabric! ARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!

I just love everything about this set. The front of the armrests are soo cool!

After we got these suckers home I was back on Craigslist and saw a posting in Modesto that said they were looking for a chair to match the one they have.

This is the chair a couple in Modesto already have.

Tell me what are the chances that we find a couch set like we did and then someone posts an ad on Craigslist asking if anyone has a chair like theirs. It is soo strange and cool how things turn out sometimes. This set was destined to go to this couple. Mel and I are so happy that these found a happy home.
