This chair came out a while ago, but it's taken some time for us to warm up to it. We didn't think much of the Hippie Armchair when it first appeared in CB2's catalog, but when we saw the red-orange version in person, we loved it. Despite being very similar to a few other designs (including the Juliana Armchair by Aristeu Pires) it had an unpretentious and slightly awkward attraction of its own. We're bummed now because CB2's website only shows the black armchair as available...no red ones to be found online. The red side chair is on sale, but we don't have the same love for the armless version.
Even though we don't need any more armchairs, we'd been imagining a set of these around a blonde wooden Danish Modern table for a while now. Although the black ones are nice too, we just really loved that red.
