PDXoriginals specialize in design and furniture, with a focus on mid century modern furniture like the Chromcraft airport benches and chairs from Portland International Airport. Our focus is on sustainable furniture, rescuing and upcyling forgotten relics and reviving them for the modern era. Furniture that lasts a lifetime.
The PDXoriginals Hawthorne Brown Leather Studio Couch is our finest residential focused furniture piece. Much of the character and form of the original PDX airport benches remain, but we've updated the upholstery with gorgeous Saddle Brown, Capri leather from Oregon Leather Company. The plastic armrests have been replaced with hand selected, exotic Sapele wood, milled and finished locally. Exposed stitching brings the leather alive, and matches perfectly with the Sapele wood accents. The craftsmanship of our local, Portland-based partners is unmatched. The armrests can be removed to create a floating couch feel that fits perfectly in mid-century modern and contemporary homes.
These benches were originally installed in PDX Airport in the early 1980s. Built by venerable mid century furniture maker, Chromcraft, these benches have a timeless style and durable construction built to stand the test of time. All the metal accents have been polished, and the hand selected seats have been thoroughly cleaned. Some minor nicks and wear may appear on the accents, but these are in excellent condition considering age and frequent use.
