pea green with envy

Saturday, 25 September 2010

Saturday mornings at chez chairsmith mean lounging around, drinking hot tea and reading the papers.  It was whilst partaking in these energetic activities this morning that we spotted a quite beautiful chair as we flicked through the style pages.  The specimen in question was a revolving 'Take A Line For A Walk' armchair upholstered in a stunning pea green coloured fabric.  We downed tools without further ado and fired up the old laptop in an attempt to track down this creature;  and failed ...... although we did find a few pics of this interestingly named chair by Alfredo Häberli, but with a base of steel tubing which incorporates a foot rest.

We would like one please, please, pretty please;  or anything else from our pea green wish list .......
'H57' lounge chair designed by Herbert Hirche in 1957 (reissued)

Hirche's 'Outdoor Lounge Chair' dates from around 1953
