i recently, well 6months or so ago, bought a pair of 1950's chairs on ebay.
they are slung cowhide and wood,...and incredibly beautiful.
i bought them for the grand sum of $150 each.
last week, as a result of the cover of the current inside out magazine, i did a little research into my $150 chairs.
turns out, they are arne norell, scirocco chairs.
arne norell - Sweden 1917 - 1971
and here is the best bit,... my $150 chairs are worth a cool $3250 each.
yippee for ebay! (and for people who don't realise what they are selling).
