I Love Juhl, Man

Initially when I first spotted Jason Segal sitting in his man cave in I Love You, Man I thought it was Finn Juhl’s Bwana Chair and Ottoman for France and Sons. Then I got a better look at the wood at the top of the chair and the ottoman and realized NOPE, it’s actually a design from the 1960′s out of Sweden. I’m partial to this version with the matching “posts” on the top of the chair as well as the ottoman vs the Bwana chair. Tishu Gallery has a gorgeous orange leather one (no ottoman) for $4750, Machine Age has one in the same wood as in I Love you, Man for $4900, and Tom Gibbs Studio has the steal for $2400.  Since I don’t really know anything about this company I can’t say if this is a TRUE knock off.   They both definitely have the baseball bat detail so I can’t tell you “who’s on first…” with that design.

Double Dorkdom Alarm… Identifying furniture design on a SYFY show…

So I’m excited that the new fall season of TV is starting. SYFY’s Alphas is actually about to have it’s season finale.  This show reminds me of NBC’s Heroes mixed with X-Men mixed with Rainman.  Quite a combo.

Dr. Rosen’s office has a pair of Finn Juhl for France and Sons chairs. Great example of 1950′s Danish chairs. Baxter & Liebchen has one for $4000. Tom Gibbs Studio has a pair for $4900 and Galerie Andre Hayat has a gorgeous restored and reupholstered pair, which I didn’t contact about the price.  My guess is $5600 for the pair, but I could be wrong.
