cool chair, bro.
seriously, like that design.

Would not, you can get the lesser versions of 'the chair' for $1500 ish (upholstered seat) and other authentic pieces that are not as famous in the $500 range.

Hmm, yeah maybe. I think it's a good looking chair, still. Either way, got a few suggestions for chairs suitable for office use in the $500 range? I really love the Sibast No 8, but it's a little hard to find, even here in Denmark (at least if I want the old teak version, which I do smile.gif). Helge Sibast's grandchild just started producing it again (last year), by the way. Seems like it's only in oak, though, and they priced it at $1000. Should be able to find it much cheaper used.

Not sure what $500 gets you in Denmark, but you can buy a wishbone chair by Carl Hansen for that here. It is at least as comfortable as the above chair.

Looks like you could probably get a finn juhl diplomat chair by France and sons for a reasonable price as well.

If you live in Copenhagen there's a vintage shop on Sortedams dosseringen http://www.antikhallen.dk , which may have something that would work.

Thoughts?

Not a fan. It would better if much slimmer or much chunkier. Also, the way the sculpted base abruptly stops an inch or so below the shade is not very elegant.

I think I'm in love. To top it off they even named the model after my dog.

Why does the auction notice/invite mention livestock?
post #2259 of 4183
Bit of a cowboy theme.

That clock sold for 3750. Just under retail. Theres sbout 50 people here and they're going crszy. Damaged goods are selling for more than retail.

And the hairy guy from South Park keeps walking in front of me. Back and forth.

Warrior outfits sold for 600. They had a guy run through the audience in his smalls dressed in the mask.

A good time was had by all.

Really want this, but my space is not a loft nor a French chateau - not sure if it will work.

Good grief. I´m sorry but that just looks like a collection of square vinyl bags thrown together. There are other far better examples of such a sofa arrangement. If you like that lego look what about a light coloured Polder Sofa from Vitra. I do like the tables though
post #2263 of 4183
What exactly do you like about that sofa? To be honest, I really can't stand it myself. The bulk overwhelms even a palatial room like the one in the photo. Also, the way it is upholstered (slip covers, perhaps?) does not complement its right-angled, straight-edged form. It looks sloppy.

Maybe worst of all, the arrangement seems poorly thought out. Why use is the capacity to lounge around with half a dozen other people, very closely, yet all facing away from each other? Odd.

A similar table.
post #2265 of 4183
If you want a regularly shaped alternative to that amoebae of a sofa, Restoration Hardware has a somewhat reasonable approximation of the style. I like it, personally. Modern usually means uncomfortable but it looks like a very practical style that would be easy to live with.
