Midway Airport Seating from Revival

Danny sent us this note about his recent purchase at re. Revival. Although he wants it put to a Hot or Not vote, we wanted to share a bit of history behind it. Feel free to comment on the Hot or Not side of things!

Dear AT,
I recently purchased this from Revival on Southport and Irving Park. They claim it was in storage at Midway airport - apparently it was "spare" seating that was used in the terminals in the 70's before the renovations began.

I love the clean, open feel and the curvilnear metal arms. It's a lot more comfortable to sit in and relax than it looks.
(More info and pics below the jump).

Just wondering if others think this is "Hot or Not"? It'd be fun to see what people think of it... Either way, I love the piece... I truly believe in buying what you love! Also, does anyone know who might have designed this?

Danny

Dear Danny,

Personally, we think this is HOT and that you've integrated it well into your home. Hotter still is that it came from an airport, a source of endless people watching, emotion, and exhaustion. An airport is the quintessential "no place," quite the opposite from the retreat of your home. We love that you went for it. The red wall/orange seat combo is quite intense, but after staring at it for a while, we really like the bold color combo, especially with the green wall thrown into the mix.

Anyone else??
