More about the chair

Posted by andrea in: Oh! Things!

Dear Andrea

Thank you for your interest in Kessels Upholstering.

This is the famous Kroehler Hostess chair. It came in 2 sizes and from
the picture I cannot tell if it is the large one or the small one. They
date back to the sixties and are popular again for their ‘retro’ look.
Including a stock fabric of $20/yard the smaller one would cost $200.00
to repair and recover, and the bigger one would cost $275.00.

We hope this information helps you.

You should totally upholster that chair! It’s very funky, and who wouldn’t want a ‘famous Kroehler hostess chair’ in their home? It’s super cool.

My thoughts are you should decide where it’s going to live (living room? bedroom?) and upholster to match that. Or just pick a fab colour that you love and go for the eclectic look.

Either way, this cannot go to the basement. You MUST drink a martini while sitting in it.

I love love love that chair.

If you can’t use it I’ll come pick it up.

Great find!

I have more of a question than comment. I’ve recently found a pair of these Kroehler Hostess Chairs. What do you consider to be a fair price for a set of these in their original fabric?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
