After what seems like an eternity, we've finally managed to lay our hands on an original model 420C side chair by Harry Bertoia. We didn't plump for a shiny new chair from a fancy shop, oh no! Rather, we decided to rescue this forlorn and generally unloved looking chair which, as you can see, is in desperate need of some TLC. This baby has, at some point, been sprayed white and sadly left to go a little rusty around the edges. But with the 'new' paintwork chipped in places, there are small glimpses here and there of the original black vinyl-coated finish.
