Vintage Thonet-Styled Heart-Shaped Bentwood Chairs
A Red Bird
A Red Bird is mother-daughter business which specializes in refinishing and reupholstering vintage and antique furniture.
Red birds take our breath away with their beauty, and we hope that the beauty of our furnishings takes your breath away as well. We gather great furniture, accents, and supplies to create unique things for your home or place of business.
We select items based on their beauty and quality. Every piece has a past -- its own story. Minor cosmetic imperfections help tell that story, so they are left intact. When large or structurally compromising flaws are discovered, we always repair them. Please message or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or requests; don’t hesitate to ask!
We also make custom pieces -- particularly machinist chests and ottomans. Additionally, we can refinish/reupholster something that you already own.
Because each piece is unique, we think they deserve a beautiful name as well. Each of our pieces are given one at the end of their time with us.

Meet our newly refinished and reupholstered Myra armchairs! We love everything about these vintage, bentwood beauties. The heart-shaped back splats, swooping armrests, and ringed stretchers give these chairs an open, graceful appearance. Restoring the wood was a pleasure, as it revealed a wonderful diversity of color and tone throughout. After putting in fresh webbing, we created new seat cushions and covered them with a plush, woven chenille of grey, ivory, turquoise, and gold. Each cushion is encircled with a double band of velvet piping. Let us know if you want this set in your home!
Newly restored and upholstered.
There was a small crack in the wood, but it has been repaired.
No structural problems -- these are very sturdy chairs.
