Black Theo A. Kochs Mid Century Barber Chair

We here at The Salon Chair Guys have a deep love for the early to mid-century barber chair.

These classic chairs all have individual stories and a history that beckons to be told. Through the restoration process we get to hear theses wonderful stories told by the Barbers who own the chairs, family members who have held on to chairs for years, and the avid collector.

My favorite chair restoration story involves a 1921 Konken and the family that refused to let it sit in storage any longer. The client was the grandson of the original owner. We were told the chair had moved from his house as a child, to his college dorm, then into storage for years.

In memory of his grandfather, he decided to have it restored. Throughout his life it was s symbol of how his father, an immigrant, worked tirelessly to provide for his family. Along with the chair, he had several newspaper write-ups featuring his grandfather’s shop and several pictures of him at work. With a little digging, we found the original shop that sold the chair brand new out of New York.

Having the experience of working to restore chairs like his are an honor and gives us pride. We look forward to every opportunity to do so.

Whether it’s a Koken, Emil J. Paidar, Belmont, or Comet we strive to make each chair restoration a memorial experience.
