It's Kinda Looking Like The Great Craigs-Drought Of 2014 Is Finally Over! I Nabbed This Great Pair Of Slat Seat Swivel Lounge Chairs A Couple Days Ago And Have Missed Out On A Few Other Gems Along The Way. So Things Are Looking Up! Status: Ready.
I've been trying to get this fantastic set of bent plywood swivel loungers down to the booth in The Green Shag Market for a couple of days now. You have no idea how many times I've driven down there on a Tuesday (the only day they AIN'T open) to drop something off.
First of all, even though these look like maybe they're by Arthur Umanoff or somebody similar, these
are not vintage. These are a contemporary interpretation of the Hans Brattrud "Scandia" chair. Even
though they are contemporary, I can't seem to find a place that still offers these on line. So, if you
like what ya see...ya might wanna get to The Shag this weekend before they get snatched up!
New, used, vintage or otherwise...I don't pass on great design. I try real hard not to be a snob about
reproductions. We can't all afford to populate our humble abodes with the likes of original Wegner
Papa Bear chairs or even original versions of the ubiquitous Eames shell chair. If I find it cheap, it's
going in the back of Frank and will likely end up in one or the other of my booths at The Green Shag
Market or The Antique Mall of Creve Coeur. Think of Mr. Modtomic's booths as the 1stDibs for the
working stiff...where you can actually take the items for a test drive before clicking the purchase
