That's what many people actualy never think about when it comes to things which look rather used and worn off. And respectless dispose things which many times have hidden beauty casted away in it's years of use. Maybe you like to see this, because lounching, relaxing and thinking of design and reuse is after all running trough all our vains.. Like this old barber chair i found in a cellar from grandpa Simon after he passed away and we where called to help cleaning out his house. Grandpa Simon was my best friends father and also a little bit my dad and grandpa at the same time. Nobody wanted this old worn off thing and it stood ready for disposal when i arived at the house. Luckely i was the only one seeing the history, hidden beauty and quality, so took it home with me. It stood at my place for a while, just looking at it and sitting in it and everybody was thinking why the hell is he still dragging this shabby 50 year old thing around the house? Well what do you know? Finaly it came to me with lounching in this thing and thinking of my times with granpa Simon and what he would like me to do with this. Grandpa Simon was an old sailor and old pioneer serving the marine and we both are Jules Verne fan and liked Captain Nemo very much. So Captain Nemo it became.. It needed a buffing, get rid of some parts, a new jacket and some new shoes.. Took those ugly caps and rubbers off to reveal the hidden true beauty of it's old fashion hydrolic jack i knew it had to be under there. Started buffing the metal and routing, chiseling and filing it's new wooden oak shoes. Gave the old black cast iron parts a Captain Nemo like bronze color.. As chrome, bronze and wood combined are things you actualy would find on ships and boats.. Ordered me a wonderfull champange colored Argentinian cow hide to contrast grandpa Simons pioneer spirit. Brought the seats and the hide to the best upholsterer i could find, because working hide is not a job for everybody to pull of realy nice, i do not have the machinery for that. And finaly it turned out like this, a nice lounge chair to sit in front of and enjoy my aquascape for hours. And find other inspirations. That is if i'm allowed to sit in it of course.. There for the question to dispose or not? I say give it a time a better look and a thought first. Some old crap is more beautifull then you might think. Ok it's a matter of taste and still this project did cost me a few hours of elbow grease and +/- €450 material and labor cost for the upholsterer. But it is one of a kind, nowhere to find and next to that not made anymore in this kind of quality. For me it was well worth the work and money. Some people just throw it away. Thanks for watching, hope you enjoyed it and maybe makes you think twice before you throw something out as garbage.. Cheers Marcel..
