The Ultimate Chair - Harry Bertoia

The coolest chairs were created by Artist and Designer Harry Bertoia in the 1950's.  He sought to create sculptural pieces that were also functional.  His chairs are highly sought out by collectors of mid century modern furniture and can sell for upwards of $500.

Well here is the kicker....My friend Wendy ( one of the luckiest pickers I know)  found this original Bertoia Knoll Diamond Chair with the original teal cover in near perfect condition.

Lucky for me it really goes with my house and I get to borrow it -  forever !  Oh, forgot to mention what she paid for it -----$2.99 ----(did you just fall off of your $500. Bertoia) !!  At  Sally's ( aka Salvation Army) in West Chester, PA.
