Could anyone tell me...

Who designed the contour chair that was sold over infomercials etc?

Kitschy to the max, but I love them! I own a gold one from the 50s.

I'd love to know any information about them or the company.


Not mine, but an ok example.(although the picture is crushed.)

They're still around, only now they make the Craftmatic adjustable bed. They stopped making the chair after some lawsuits about deceptive advertising... I don't know who the designer was at Contour, but I do know who the pitchman was, check this out (2:00 in)
