The big "for me only" purchase. Selig "Z" Chair. Status: Taken...by ME!!!
So, I never thought I'd be a guy who spends a lot (A LOT!) of money on "A" chair. But sometimes...
well, sometimes you just have a little extra money layin' 'round with nothing begging it's
attention! What I really REALLY wanted was an Eames style lounge chair and ottoman, but I
looked and looked and just couldn't find what I wanted. I had seen this beauty on the
Springfield Mo. C-list a while back and thought for sure it had already been snatched up. I
called the seller (which turned out to be an antique mall [Funtiques Market 417-864-0948]...a
very cool antique mall!) and "why yes, it's still available. Why don't you drive on down FROM
ST. LOUIS and pick it up!"
So like I said, it was priced pretty high...and uh, I forgot that I'd have to pay tax since it was at a
business. Oh yeah, $50 gas too. But, even though I'm so not a haggler, I managed to talk down
the seller a bit and loaded the beauty up in the wagon. To me, this chair represents the Alpha
Dog of the Danish Modern Lounge Chair genre. What do you think?
