I don't know anything about this chair that I just received from my mom's neighbor. It has Kevi casters on it, but I've searched the internet and can't find ANYTHING like it pictured. I love it, and would love to know more. Year of manufacture? Value? Rarity (assume it's rare since I can't find anything like it pictured on the internet). Nevertheless, I love it, but was thinking some of you may know more. Thanks! Britt in Minneapolis

    This might not be your exact chair, but it's close, and maybe you can do a search to see if same company made yours.

    Hey woman34,
    The Kevi chair was marketed and sold through Herman Miller, manufacturers of "modern" home and office furniture. Although the wheels/casters are Kevi, made in Denmark, the chair may not be. Google "Herman Miller Kevi chairs" and you'll see a handful of vintage styles.

    thank you west_mi_collects-- i have been searching other sites, including herman miller, but have not come across anything close. i have been in contact with the company that makes kevi casters and know they sold to many companies, i just can't find the designer of this chair. but thank you for the tip. my search continues. :)
