Q: I came across this amazing modern chair at a local thrift store for only 10 dollars. The label tells me the designer is Maurice Burke and it is called an "Alpha" chair. I tried looking up more info on the internet but only came up with one site stating it was a "rare and obscure Brazilian design". Other than that, I haven't been able to find any other information on it! Anyone know anything more about this chair or have one like it?

Editor: Heather- We did a little digging and it seems that Maurice Burke designed some Saarinen knock-off pieces back in the day which have now acquired vintage cred of their own. We couldn't find much of anything about your cool Alpha chair, but are confident our knowledgeable readers will have additional information to share. Either way- a great $10 find!
