    Found this unique chair inside an old movie theater last Friday. Thought maybe others have some interesting furniture finds to share...

    you should be able to figure it out...
    It was designed by a very very long torso'd one-armed man... For others of his ilk...

    Kinda cool, but I think it needs a left armed version on the other side of the table...

    a couple years back I found this stereo egg chair at a thrift store. I bought it for $25, took it home to photograph my pets on it, and then sold it the next day for $100. It was MUCH uglier in person, though VERY comfy........ and the built-in speakers still worked (though they sounded like garbage).

    Ray,
    There was the left arm version on the other side! Could not get it into the photo since I only had the 45mm lens with me.

    Luke,
    That chair is a hoot. Reminds of the round chair they used in the old 60's TV show 'The Prisoner'.
    If was for No.1 or was it No.2, I can't remember.

    If I had money to burn, I'd buy one of those. The designer was Eero Aarnio. Here's a pretty cool little video....

    In my next life I want to come back as an industrial designer - it seems that there is more freedom and buyer willingness to accept modern contemporary design.
    Whereas in architecture (& especially the UK domestic market) tested formulas rule - put up something Victorian / Edwardian & the housebuilders & public love it.
    OK there are plenty of retro designs within product markets but usually there is a need for the design to be modern up to date - more refreshing, more exciting & (better paid too).
