    Sorry, not truck parts...

    2 Wassily Chairs in gray leather. They are in perfect shape. The leather is very tight with no cracks, fading or tears. These modern design chairs retail for $500-700. Designed in 1925 by Marcel Breuer for abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky.

    We got a new sectional sofa so there isn't any room for them. $200 each OBO you pick-up.

    They look just like this but with gray leather...

    I didn't think there would be any takers here, but I thought I'd try. I posted them on craigslist.org and had two calls in 20 minutes! If anyone is interested, let me know.

    I'm sure the guy who designed these chairs in 1925 didn't get paid anywhere near the current retail price for these chairs. I didn't think that there would be any takers on the board but I thought I'd give it a try anyway.

    Honestly, these are cheap compaired to some of the mid-century furniture designs. If you can locate an original Eames chair (formed plywood) your "sitting" on anywhere from $1000-$10,000. It boggles my mind (and I'm a designer) that furniture can go for that much $ and a computer, with much more technology and parts, can sell fro $400. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif
