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 Because of this, Hepcat Restorations no longer represents who we are.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.

Panton Era Tufted Leather Tulip Base Club Chairs

Mel and I saw these chairs on eBay a couple of months back and we bought them. They were in Salem Oregon. We shot up there over one weekend and snagged them while we were up there picking up a couch, chair and ottoman set.

These had some condition issues when we got them. There were some cracks in the base that I had to fill and paint.

The fabric is in fantastic condition for its age. I assume these were produced sometime in the 70’s.

I searched all over these pieces and could not find any makers mark. These are made of thick, hard plastic not fiberglass.

The cushions attach to the plastic shell with buttons.

I think it looks great next to our space age lamp/shelf and that large Letterman.
