A recent thrifting expedition to Tucker, GA seemed like a total bust... that is, until we spied a dilapidated antique shack and the five vintage Bertoia chairs sitting in its parking lot. A set of four white side chairs and this gray specimen beckoned us closer.
An enthusiastic proprietor informed us that we could have the entire white set for $265 and that he'd graciously toss in the gray chair gratis. Sadly, we'd quickly realized that all of the white'uns were contemporaneous knock-offs and that the only authentic piece was the gray loner.
A few minutes of haggling and fifty bucks later, we were on the road with a new addition to our master bedroom. So far, the chair has earned one big fan—a frequently napping Otis!
