Legs a bit wobbly?
We’re always repairing things at the Laurin. That’s why it’s still a Grand Hotel in the true sense of the word: built in 1910, and impeccably maintained ever since. Our in-house cabinetmakers carry out more than 3,000 small repairs each year. Herbert Schrott’s son, Dieter, has been with us for 22 years too. The chairs wobble most, he says. ”Dainty feet, like all period furniture.“
During the major renovation in the 1990s, Laurin owner Franz Staffler decided to keep everything until something better could be found. So his cabinetmakers repaired all the windows and shutters, restored the furniture and repainted the old doors. ”We even made our own scrapers for the wood profiles,“ recalls Dieter Schrott. Often, he and his father work from a simple, handwritten note. When architect Boris Podrecca designed the new furniture, he often supplied only sketches. ”We built the prototypes from that.“
