Alfie Hume (humemodern.com) did an incredible job with restoring my trashed Craigslisted Eames lounge. Cost around $1,000 to have all the panels completely refinished, drill holes (!) filled in, new shockmounts fitted, shipping, etc. Also used a company called Creative Colors International who specialize in leather repair who restored the scratches and fading on the leather really well. Cost about $200 for them to come and spend the morning meticulously sanding, airbrushing and polishing. They claim to be able to restore cuts, holes, slashes, etc - if your upholstery is sound but just has holes (ie. not rotting away) you may be able to get it restored pretty cheap. Edit: Chair is worth every penny. It's comfortable as hell (I'm 6'6" so was wondering if it would be too small. It's not.), looks awesome and will hold it's value.
