We enjoy Adult Swim's hilarious cartoon The Venture Brothers, so we were thrilled when reader Dave sent in visual proof of the show's coolness:

In addition to being incredibly funny, Cartoon Network's show "The Venture Brothers" features many great nods to mid-century design. The show recently began it's third season and already there have been cameo appearances by some well-known chairs. Clearly the guys running the show have a thing for chair design. Here's some screen grabs from the show's four latest episodes:...

This first one is the only one we couldn't name precisely. Maybe it's an amalgamation? After some research we've closed in on a hybrid of Jeffrey Bernett's Metropolitan Armchair and Jean Marie Massaud's Auckland Armchair....

Eames Aluminum Group chairs...

Corbusier's LC4 Lounge...

Bertoia stools...

Thanks Dave!
