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
