Say hello. These guys are a little misunderstood. I picked them up on the side of the road (actually I picked up the one without a hole first, and then about 5 hours later I felt bad and went to pick up it's brother, too).
The chrome is a bit rusty, the wood needs a little love and the caning needs to be replaced, but I think these nerds have a little badass in them. Fil gave me the idea of reupholstering them with a camel-coloured leather. That's a yes.
EDIT: I did a little research and found out that Marcel Breuer designed these, and they're called Cesca side chairs, now produced by Knoll. I looked and couldn't find a stamp anywhere so I'm pretty sure they're knockoffs, but I didn't pay anything for them so I don't really care. I think I'm going to have them recovered with rattan since that's how they are originally made. I still need to clean the chrome and the wood but that will happen when I have the extra money.
