The Steelcase Vintage Quidditch Chair
It was overdue for re-upholstery, so I picked up some material yesterday and recovered my 1950’s Steelcase chair. The finish on this one is in okay shape, but I really want to refinish both it and its twin which I spent a bit of time cleaning up yesterday.

It’s now been redubbed the Quidditch chair by the household.

Steelcase midcentury stick leg chair with new upholstry that looks like a vintage newspaper.
