The Theo A Kochs Company from Chicago (why is it that so many barber chair manufacturers were based in Chicago?) has a long history of well-built vintage barber chairs. Nowadays, we have to say ‘vintage.’ Back then, selling barber chairs was a very good business.
It's difficult to find information on the Internet about the life of Theo Kochs. But if you google it, you will find hundreds of chairs for sale online. There's no doubt that once upon a time, there were Kochs chairs in many barber shops across the country. Other people have chair parts for sale. If you have a Koch Barber Chair needing repairs, you can get the part you need and do it yourself, or hire somebody to do the job for you. If you have a Kochs chair that you want to know more information about, or just want to show it to the world, check our forum.
