Although It is most likely an inexpensive designer knockoff it is certainly not common. It drives me crazy not knowing it's origin I hope the community here can help me identify this piece.
I acquired this piece from a local thrift store, and have had a terribly difficult time identifying it. the base is a two piece chromed steel clam-shell design. The cushion is a single-piece tufted vinyl, colored vibrant reddish orange, and has a unique vintage pattern fabric sewn into the bottom. It is a great looking piece style wise, and although I would NOT say the build quality and hardware are on par with any premium designers like Herman Miller it is nonetheless a solid and comfortable chair. How should I describe it Italian... Danish... Art Deco... Ikea? I have found several key designers whom this chair seems to have been inspired by including Gastone Rinaldi (Sabrina Chair), Renato Zevi (Ellipse Chair), and of course the Barcelona Chair made famous by Knoll.
Thank you for looking!
