    First thing I thought of was “Jetsons”! I wondered about the seam on the seats but it makes a whole heckuvalot more sense to have it towards the front when you’d always see the back of the stool.
    Too bad there’s no history/provenance/back story – the shape they’re in and the varied colors makes me think showroom floor samples?

    So magnificent! So Sixties-colorful, and the condition of the upholstery is to marvel at. And how ’bout that vintage stereo receiver in the second photo? Bring on the martinis, the little black dresses, and the Henry Mancini music!

    It is extremely rare to find 6. They were sold in pairs so it is quite common to find 2, sometimes 4, but 6 that match are hard to find. It took me 2 years of constant obsessive searching to find mine. Oddly enough, they came from the same area.

  4. Scott says:

    That’s the sort of find that would have a person re-imagining their entire basement into a gigantic lounge area just to use them. And such a rich color palette as only the 1950s could give us, completely uncategorizable as a bright, pastel, or neutral.

    By the way I see a roof sealant called Through The Roof is being advertised on your site. IT IS GREAT! I used this stuff on several places on my roof–vent penetration, the chimney and anywhere else I needed to glue down asphalt shingles to each other or to metal, etc. I highly recommend it.

  6. Joe says:

    Where do people keep these things? I mean, do they have a storage unit somewhere in which they stash away vintage goodies, hoping someday they’ll spring them on us? It’s amazing to me that so-many people still have vintage items to tempt us.

    Hi, is there a possibility to get this stools to Berlin? They would be perfect for the bar we design. Thank you.
