Last week I took a swing through the Greater Columbus Antique Mall; as I was leaving this chair was coming in. I didn't have the cash on me at the time but I made a point of stopping by yesterday to see if the chair was still available.
Yup, it's a wing back styled fiberglass chair. This was not a super bargin but it was a third of the typical Ebay list price.
I have always thought this chair was way cooler than the Eames shell chair
Let me tell you, this chair is quite comfortable
Commonly this chair is attributed to Luther Conover, primarily due to the style of the legs, but here my friends is concrete proof that this chair was designed by Lawrence Peabody for Selig
What's that in the center of this Selig ad?
Peabody Fiberglass chair. Boo-ya!
