these are the first two chairs i refurbished myself. as a webshop owner I found myself constant behind my computer. so i will try to create more with my hands ones in a while.
i really love basic farmers chairs (ultimately the ‘shaker-style’). but also dutch farmers furniture has always a very honest and sympathetic design.
the wood of these two chairs i sanded and treated with an iron oxide. oxide gives a reaction on oak wood. this is not my idea; for instance Christien meindertsma did it before in a wonderfull project with oak. oak reacts on iron oxide by turning blueish black. but every wood type has a different reaction. i was not sure if my chairs were oak. after the treatment i discovered they were made partly oak and probably beach as well. the color is a brownish black mainly.
and the chairs needed a new seat. Therefor i learned myself the old craft of rush weaving. heavy but great fun to do.
if you are interested in purchasing these chairs please contact me and give me an offer.
And if you have your own old furniture piece that needs a new woven seat let me know.
