It was the first stop on my wife and I's honeymoon this past October: got off the plane from Toronto, got our rental car, ate at Encounters then hit the road for Palm Springs. One of the best Jetson-age buildings ANYWHERE. A true American masterpiece. I was in awe...

Hi fiftysomething, I have the same chair. The small chrome Bertoia diamond chair. I can tell you mine does not have any markings but I do know it to be real since I bought it from a prop house here in Toronto and they bought it from Knoll and gave me the receipts to prove it.

Hope this isn't out of line to do this here (especially since I'm more of a "lurker" than a poster on this board) but I was wondering, Atomic Ranch Editor, if you're interested in any stories from the Great White North...specifically Toronto.

You know the ones I mean, they're shaped like a cool 50's starburst and there's a little one for the doorbell and a bigger one for the doorknob? Everytime my...
