Description

This vintage 1970s chair by Daystrom has everything we love about the era. Oscar The Grouch green faux fur make this Daystrom tulip chair ever so inviting. The chair offers a comfy sit with padded upper back rest and seat and a slight backward pitch for relaxed sitting. The tulip base is borrowed from Eero Saarinen’s iconic dining set for Knoll. Most appealing is the brilliant grass green colored Lucite (acrylic) back rest. When the light shines through this thing it invokes memories of the endless joys of summer. The chair swivels when turned. Consider using this eye-pleaser as a desk chair or occasional chair.

Daystrom Furniture:

Daystrom began in 1934 as an ashtray manufacturing company located in Olean, NY. By 1938 the company evolved to create chrome dinette sets and upholstered pieces. In 1962 Daystrom moved to South Boston where they pioneered the art of making inexpensive, stylish, durable furniture. Daystrom’s furniture crafted from raw materials and using in-house designers were a hit with the flourishing house-proud American middle class. Ted Van Benschoten served as the company’s Design Director for until Daystrom’s close in 1996. Benschoten oversaw product development from sketch to production and marketing, guiding a team of independent designers as well as crafting his own creations. Daystrom was a brand accessible to families who desired the latest trends. Their hallmark durability has stood the test of time with many vintage pieces still holding up remarkably well over so many decades! It is no wonder why this familiar brand still holds a warm place in the hearts of those who have already lived it. Benschoten’s avant-garde designs still hold up as fresh and evocative despite being nearly fifty years old.
