At flea markets, you can sometimes find real treasures – often at a bargain price, too! But in order to distinguish valuable pieces from junk, you need a sharp eye. Like Andreas Gattwinkel. He has a passion for restoring antique designer furniture in order to resell them afterwards. He gives new life to old pieces of furniture, which many of us would just walk past disdainfully.
The other day, Andreas bought three shabby designer armchairs and restored them himself. In the picture on the left, you can see one of them.
All three chairs are the model Tecta D99 and were designed by the architect Hans Könecke. In case that doesn’t ring a bell: the pieces are very rare and thus equally valuable. You’ve probably already guessed it: for restoring the designer armchairs, he used some of our WEICON products.
