Around Town: Antique Co. sidewalk chair hangin’ out

28 Sep

I saw them loading up the sidewalk this morning at the Antique Company on 21st & X and caught a glimpse of them setting this out. Eyes narrowed,  slowed down to scope it out, had to get a picture. Looks like a piece from the early 50’s, I can imagine Lucille Ball straight chillin’ on it. What caught my eye were the strange legs that looked like a swivel base. Stupidly, while standing right in front of the damn thing I didn’t check to see if it actually did rotate. There was no price tag, maybe that part of the sidewalk was the “make an offer” area. I could see this being reupholstered in a delicious and durable Knoll fabric and looking goddamn stunning. Bling blanggg.

    I am pretty sure that is a Kroehler chair. I have had a couple and they do swivel.

      fantastic! Looking under Kroehler I’ve definitely found the similar broad-back and over-stuffed style. I think you’re correct! Here is a yellow and orange one that was listed on eBay –

      I’d like to go back to the Antique Co. and see if there is any brand or markings on it. I can’t afford to buy/reupholster it, I’m mostly curious now.
