I have a set of FIVE original model 3238 Borge Mogensen arm chairs. The frames are oak. The seats/backs are heavy leather with stitching and original buckles. The frames are in great condition - original finish, sturdy, and clean. The leather has suffered from years of storage in a non-climate controlled garage before I rescued the chairs. All the buckles are in good condition and the leather is intact, but is badly dried and needs to be reconditioned.
I have two questions related to the chairs:
1. What is the best way to recondition the leather?
2. How does reconditioning the leather impact the value of the chairs?
