Look, it's a danish modern chair.

So I'm out thrifting and decide to check out some places that I'd not been to before. I found out there was a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Fort Myers (the Ft Myers in FL, which is pretty close to where I live) so I stopped in. Having never been to a ReStore before I went in with no expectations but came out with this:

Okay, so far I like ReStore. I have to tell you there were tons of things in this place. Toilets, sofas, TVs, electrical boxes, you name it. I could have spent hours in there, but there were other places on the list to check out. So once I spied this little honey I snatched her up and headed for the door.

So I take this chair to the register, hand them the tag, and pay a whopping ten dollars. Well, ten dollars and sixty cents with tax. Can you believe it? Ten bucks! I really like ReStore now.

There are bloggers out there who know all the designers, and what region a style came from, and what year a particular model came out. Not me. I'm at a loss to give you any info about this chair - except it's cool and I paid TEN BUCKS for it!

Do you know anything about it? If you do, please share. Have a look.

Kind of a crappy slip cover thing going on.

The suspension looks good.

All of the joints are good and tight. Excellent frame.

I removed the slip covers and found the original upholstery.

Big floral pattern. What do you think 1968 - 1971?

No disrespect intended, but this one gets recovered.

We'll be back later with . . . more stuff.


  1. Love it and love the big floral print and, oh my, the price! OMG, I'd kill to pay $10 for a great looking MCM chair in Chicago! Congrats!

  2. A very famous man once said: Some days you are the bug, and some days you are the windshield.

    I was definitely the windshield that day.
