Can anybody provide me with an idea of how much it may cost for reupholstering the chair below with top grain leather? I am in eastern PA close to New Jersey. TIA

~$75 plus materials. I don't remember if it was mentioned here, but getting it done at an automotive upholstery shop can be half the cost if the local upholstery shops seem too expensive.

Upholstering with leather will cost more.
Figure about $125for half a hide from Radio Shack....

Most likely the chair structure itself won't be worth the cost. My FIL just retired, closing his custom upholstery shop after 44 years. He said people could by mass produced furniture for less than he could recover it. He said most stuff being made and sold today is junk.

He made our couch in 1993, it has been recovered twice and is like new.

Maybe get in touch with George Hamilton, and ask where he goes.

Ricardo Montalban is his agent I believe.

Your Fil's name doesn't happen to be Allen?

Had a couple of headliners replaced, then had them reupholster my great uncle's old office chair, and repair a 30+ year old La-Z-Boy.
