What you may not have seen is a real, live C140 chair, now affectionately called the Playboy Chair, with which Jens Risom is posing. And if you blinked, you may have missed the two fully restored C140s we had in the store. They were exquisitely restored with the exact fabric and same cane the chair in the photo had. Take a look at these beauties.

These were, hands down, the most accurately restored pieces we've ever had in the store, and they flew out the door yesterday before I could even publish this post. Before the end of the day, the new owners had visited our Facebook page to share a picture of the chairs in their home.
