Feeling Kinda Basic Today. Thought I'd Share These Hard Working Blue Collar Bar Stools With Ya. Status: Available...Dependable...and a little Sexy in a "workin' on the car" sorta way?
So maybe they ain't from some frozen European country and they ain't sporting some fancy pants accent...but when your kid runs his (or her) Tonka truck into them, they ain't gonna cry to Momma. Good Ol' American Steel, baby. Remember, it's the backbone of the Nation.
Got ya feeling patriotic yet? Or are you just giggling at my lame attempt? But for
real, not everything cool or "easy on the eyes" (I hesitate to call them beautiful) is
Scandinavian inspired or Danish Modern derived. How come we never use or hear
the term American Modern? Is there such a thing in these things we love? Would
these stools qualify? They have a sorta Space Age thing in the tapered and
splayed legs. Steel, Chrome and Vinyl...doesn't that pretty much describe every
American car from the 50's and 60's, and weren't they just about the most
American and Modern things you could buy? Does this sound like a rant? How
many questions can I ask in one post about a simple set of four American Modern
bar stools? I don't know...I just....don't know....
Anyway, I've got an ad up on the New Orleans Craigslist as we are heading down
there for our Spring Break (19th - 23rd [ish]) and I like to bring a load of St. Louis
goodies with me...like a mid century Santa...but one that gets paid for the
presents. I had a buyer ask about the Pink Bar Stools but balked at the price so I
offered to pull these out of the Garage and send her some pics to see if she might
be interested in these instead. Unfortunately she already has a set similar to
these. No sale. The good news is that, since I then already had them out, I could
clean them up a little and shoot some pics for you and to put them on my ad
proper. So here they are and yes, they are available!
