Just in time for Valentines  Day!

We are excited to show this rare and iconic Heart Cone chair by Danish Designer Verner Panton.

In the mid-1950′s, Verner panton converted a Volkswagen bus into a mobile studio and travelled across Europe. In 1958 he returned to Denmark full of unconventional ideas… one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair. Defying gravity, the cone was both futuristic and shocking… so much so that when it was exhibited in a shop window in New York City police had to order its removal due to the traffic chaos its presence created. The Heart Cone Chair takes its name from its unique heart-shaped silhouette!

This beautiful chair is currently part of our Valentines Day window display along with other great examples of design.  All in Mid-Century Red naturally!
