roped folding chairs, Yugoslavia edition

yugo1There are a lot of these folding chairs from Yugoslavia around.  They were made with a tinted clear finish that is almost always scratched and scuffed, and the original hemp/cotton cord is inevitably frayed and worn.  I’ve always wanted to ebonize a pair of them and finally I got the chance.

yugo2These are done in Danish paper cord, which wears better than the original cord.  I also did a more Danish-style weave.  (Photo courtesy of Rob Degenhard at Home Anthology).

 

yugo4I just love the look of the natural kraft paper color against the soft black of the wood.
