Help identifying wild stretched 60s chair

Postby T.O. MidMod » Thu Mar 18, 2010 5:38 pm

Hey LLers,

Our MCM knowledge and power is vast when we work together. Here's a kookie chair we picked up at a thrift shop in Toronto (where we live) and we know, we just KNOW we've seen it before. Anyone know the manufacturer/designer or anything else about it?

Thanks!

Dave & Shauntelle

YIKES, that IS a weird one! WOW, um, I'm speechless, er ah, pretty swell though, I must admit. I'm not an expert, but I'm guessing it from a restaurant/bar, you know... Tiki-bar or that ilk. That barrel bottom has a Polynesian but even more so, a Mexican look to it, but the fabric says Poly. It's a pity about the arms, sigh! It would be my educated guess that this was custom made for said place of establishment.
When I first saw your image, I thought of this:

Have you taken the bottom off to see if there's anything to help you in your quest?
Hugh, I just thought of something, the shape of it, head on, is an inverted Coke glass, just like the old 7-Up glasses; yeah, I know I'm weird...
