My new chair has arrived!! WOO HOO!! It's so beautiful and is in very good condition considering it is 32 years old, JAN 12 1977 is stamped on the underside. Now the question is do I leave it on the swivel base or attach a rocker base!??? My intention was to use it as my main chair at my desk but now I have seen it for real I'm not sure if I want to use it everyday.....ludicrous I know! Chairs aren't just for using, they are also for staring at! I do like the softness of the shell against the industrialness of the base though. Being a Libran decisions don't come easy you know!
