Possibly made in Yugoslavia. I have a set ( 2 chairs and a sofa) that are similar - wood frame, mid-century modern, but with straighter lines, rather than the cool curves, angles, and other details seen in your photos. All are marked 'Made in Yugoslavia' on the bottom parts of the wood frames. What ...

Sara, I had a feeling from your description that they might be the same chair (except for the color, of course)! I love mine, too.. very comfortable, and doesn't take up much space.. plus, it's got that fun 'mod' look to it. It would make a perfect computer chair, since it swivels. Right now, mine i...

Howdy!

I've already posted a few times since joining last week, so I thought I'd better introduce myself! I live in Tulsa, OK, and have always loved mid-century modern. A few years ago, I bought my first home, and decided to fill it with MCM furnishings. Although what I really, truly wanted was a modern ho...

We sure could've used a dose of these guys at my last office job! But I'm sure the boss would've complained that they were negatively affecting productivity... ( Doesn't the term ' workplace morale' mean anything anymore? :-k )

Thanks for the link!

I'm dating myself here, but when I wore white patent leather as a kid, we used hair spray (Aquanet, etc) to remove scuff marks and polish our white patent leather boots and dress shoes. Just spray it on the marks, and then buff it off with a soft towel or cloth. It worked well enough for our Catholi...

Giant things on Route 66 (photos)

For all you lovers of giant-sized roadside attractions, here are a couple of photos from my day trip down Oklahoma's Route 66 yesterday. The Blue Whale in Catoosa, OK ( I actually swam here as a kid.. you could slide down the fins and dive off the tail, but swimming is no longer allowed, as the orig...

Hi Sara, I also have a chair from Virtue Bros. of California. I'd love to have a set of four, but this one was a single that a friend of mine found for me at a garage sale. Judging from your description, we might have similar chairs (although mine is orange). It doesn't have the tulip-style base, bu...
