There’s another Perfect Chair?

Okay, I’m about to go into a full-on furniture geek rant – the good kind of rant. You’ve read similar rants here. Do you remember “The Perfect Chair”?   A post we did a while back? (you can read it here, if you missed it.) Well, this rant is similar because this chair, like the last one,is another amazing chair from Lee Industries. And it really is another perfect chair – but for different reasons. This chair is a solution. An answer to a lot of chair dilemmas. It’s versatility and ability to go into any house, any room, anywhere is where its perfection lies.

Intrigued? Read on.


First of all, and listen up, because this is really great, and a bit of an anomaly in the chair world – this chair is SMALL – more specifically, its footprint is small. But the real genius of this frame is that the seat still sits like a roomy chair. This combination increases the anywhere-ness of this chair by at least one million percent. So, if you have a smaller space to fill, or maybe you want a pair of chairs and want to keep an open feel to your room, well, this is your chair.  It’s small enough to fit into a small space, but its seat is big enough to be remarkably comfortable. So, in essence it’s a small chair with the comfort of a big chair. This is technology at work – the Egyptians building the pyramids kind of innovation. The wheel. Electricity. Slice and bake cookie dough. Historical kind of brilliance.


Okay, and here’s another great thing. It has a style and line that you can plop into any kind of room – traditional, modern, cottage, clean, cluttered. This chair is a chameleon. Hey –  “The Chameleon Chair”? Uh, no. “The Anywhere Chair” ?  That has possibilities.

And now for the bullet point portion of our show :

  • American made
  • 8 way hand-tied springs
  • It comes standard with down-wrapped cushions. This is great. Trust me.
  • It has a subtle curve to the back, which makes it more ergonomic and adds a little grace to its look.
  • It can be ordered as a swivel. We love swivels
  • The upholstered version comes standard with nailhead trim or spit tacks.
  • It can be slipcovered.
  • Comfort. Comfort. Comfort. Did I say comfort?
  • A fantastic scale. Perfect size. I can’t say this enough.

Who is the ideal buyer of this chair? Could it be you? Are you clueless about what chair to buy? Do you have chair commitment issues? Do you need a chair you could use anywhere? This might just be the solution –  In fact, this chair might be the most versatile chair in our showroom. And we almost always have them on hand, which is a sign of its greatness. I can’t think of a time when there wasn’t one here in some form or another.  And right now we have several versions. Wanna see?

Still no name though. How about the Anywhere Chair? Let’s go with that. It’s catchy. It’s got a little rhythm to it…plus, it’s true.

    Well, here is MY dilemna…is it the Chair that I love or Jim’s rhetoric? Love the chair in both the leather and the two toned fabric. Howsomeever, not one word about the filthy lucre that is required to acquire it….which has to be a large part of my owning it or even just admiring it from afur. I speak of pockets that are less than deep, to clarify. I must add, however, that when I read your ads aloud, Jim…there is not a casting director in America who would not hire me for my interpretation, it is so much fun. So, how much IS that suckah??? your fan from Savannah, the Aunt of Judy and Linda…Bec.

    • Thanks for the praise. The slipcovered version of the chair is $1390. When it’s tricked out in leather the price obviously will increase. But at least that gives you an idea of where it starts in a more economical fabric.

    Can you give dimensions? I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of chairs to go in my small living room. Also, do you think this style would look good with my leather chesterfield sofa? Thanks!!

    • Well, i just saw your question, so you may not require an answer any longer, but these chairs look great with a chesterfield! i would put them together in a minute. They are the perfect for smaller spaces. A great choice! as for dimensions : OVERALL-W28 D32 H34, INSIDE-W24 D22 H18
