I came across these two ‘Number Seven Chairs” or sometimes known as “3107” chairs in a online classified ad in Orem, UT. There were two of these black chairs for only $15!! I wanted them, but figured they’d be gone by the time I made it to Orem next. So after the BYU vs SDSU football game my brother and I attended a week later I called up the lady to see if they were still available. To my surprise they were, so we headed over on the way home and picked them up. They’re practically in perfect condition except for a couple minor scratches. They’re really comfortable chairs and an icon in the world of furniture design, designed by Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen in 1955. Some of his other famous pieces include the ‘Swan‘ chair and ‘Egg‘ chair.
