Where's Eero? Please Tell Me You "Get It". Status: Diamond In The Rough?
Yes my friends, that is an Eero Saarinen (designed the Gateway Arch!) executive chair by Knoll stuffed in there. It might be coming home with me tomorrow along with a half dozen of his buddies!
Mmmm, tasty...no? And Very comfortable, too! Six more Saarinen executive chairs
by knoll. Found these sorta round about. They were in the background of a pic of
a different item for sale on Craigslist. I made an inquiry and will be purchasing
them tomorrow! They will be available soon if anybody is interested.
How about these? Also Knoll. Designer unknown. Very pretty. They'd make nice
dining chairs or desk chairs. Even occasional chairs. I could see one of these
being used like my reading nook chair in the bedroom. I believe they are referred
to as Guest Chairs. I'm enamored of the bentwood Arms, Legs and Framing.
Anybody know anything more about these?
Check out these HUGE....HUGE executive desks! The picture belies how large
these are. Note how Squat the desk looks? It's not squat at all. It's just such a
large surface that it creates a weird aspect ratio between the surface size and the
height of the surface! You could land jets on this thing if you tossed it into the
ocean (cue the Top Gun theme song!). There were tons (literally...probably, these
are built like tanks) of matching credenzas and "two high" file cabinets.
They didn't have tops installed but I bet there are tops for these laying around in
this warehouse. How about using a piece of marble or granite and turning one of
these into your patio table? I'm going to poke around in this place some more after
I purchase the Saarinen chairs to see what other treasures I can uncover, when I
get a chance. Stay tuned!
