Florence Knoll Knockoff?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. You don't have to be so dramatic about it. I've had things to do. Getting a new business started from scratch takes time. But look what came in through the door. It looks like a Knoll. Not a grassy knoll, but a white fuzzy woolen Knoll

A white wool-ish Knoll knockoff? Beats me I'm just the thrift store guy.

So anyway, we get our stuff from a variety of places and one of the places had this offering. I knew it looked Knollish, but you just knever know. Was it a Knoll knockoff or knot?

I'll knever know, but some pretty knowledgeable people check in here from time to time so maybe they'll know if this Knoll knockoff is a keeper or a with the fishes sleeper. Looky!

Two buttons and removable cushion. That's good.

It's that wool-ish fuzzy stuff. Also good.

Has the right angles and slopes and all that geometry stuff. Good!

But check out this frame. Looks like a shop class project. Not good.

And the back support, whew! That's some heavy duty steel right there.

A lot of mid-century stuff is kind of delicate. We big guys could be comfy in this monster.

1" square steel tubing is going to stand up to a lot of abuse.

This is a chair made to last. It weighs about 60 #

I for sure don't know what this is, but if you've ever seen one feel free to chime in. Oh, by the way. This one's for sale.

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