Just found a 2 cockroaches on my eames lounger... - Page 4

post #46 of 52
Was it salvageable or is a bum sitting on a 10k chair right now?

long story, suffice it to say it is no longer in my possession. It was just the lounger, not worth anywhere near 10k (thankfully). There would've been a reupholstering immediately were that the case..

Its still 5k msrp, did you look into how much it would cost to reupholster it?

You can buy the cushions pre made, so you just replace them altogether, if it was mine I would have gone custom/bespoke with the leather/fabric.

OP, I have the Filson duffle you're looking for in your sig. It has seen a cockroach or two in the past but none right now.

Great! i have a set of eames lounge chair cushions i'll trade you for across the board. They have also seen a cockroach or 2. There may still be 1 or 2 (or 50) lounging about in there but based on your previous comments I don't foresee this being a deal breaker for you. please be sure to dry clean the bag before sending it my way as I have considerately powdered the cushions with a natural cleanser in anticipation of your use.

When I was in Guangdong and Zhejiang we got roaches all year round, but again these where usually in the bathroom.
Bugs have never really bothered me. Apart from when I was a kid, I used to be terrified of flies buzzing around the bedroom when I was trying to sleep. Because I could hear them, but not see them. No problem now.

True, I am in Guangzhou at the moment. Cockroaches in the company, at my apartment...
