|The newly introduced Bungalow 5 Loop Chair ($772 Retail)|
That iconic loop chair that I love has just become more accessible. Bunglow 5 has come out with a version of the chair that will retail for $772.50. Sometimes these chairs have 4 loops, sometimes they have 8, but regardless of the number of loops, both versions are smashing.
The Elkins Loop Chair is named for legendary 20th century decorator Frances Adler Elkins who reproduced these chairs based on an 18th Century version she found on her travels. Elkins loop chairs are darlings of designers like Meg Braff and Miles Redd who have used these chairs in a few of their projects. Until now, really the only places to find then were 1st Dibs, Dering Hall or C. Bell -- but Bungalow 5 has come out with a version that will retail for 750 ($900 for the arm chair). Noir also makes a version which I found at Charlotte and Ivy for $547, but these come one way: black with a set fabric seat. While I love that these chairs will be available at a great price, part of me is kind of sad as they will probably be seen everywhere and loose some of their cachet. What do you think?
