Lion Brand Chairs

Postby Jerad » Wed Feb 11, 2009 6:04 pm

Anybody know the story on Lion Brand Chairs out of New York. I just recently purchased fifteen chairs strictly to reuse the legs. I've been looking for some patio chairs I liked and had decided I was going to have to make my own. Well I found some very aircrafty aluminum legs on these chairs for cheap and I figured now I just have to make a seat and a back that I like. Curious if anyone knows anything about the manufacturer.

your link has to end with ".jpg" for the photo to show up.
I would fix it for you, but want people to know that you have to delete anything after ".jpg"

Thanks I fought that picture last night. Seems every forum I'm on has a different method. Thanks you.

I do not know anything about Lyon Manufacturing, but you might want to see if they were/are affiliated with The Shelby Williams company as the legs on the chairs you have are a dead ringer for the legs used on Shelby Williams Gazelle Chairs!

I had as set years ago. VERY good qaulity cast aluminum...

Six of the chairs are labeled Shelby Williams, the other fifteen are Lion Brand. On my flickr someone commented that they used these in the diner scene in pulp fiction. And are actually from Yugoslavia, maybe they were just imported into New York.
