Wow! These mod chairs by Daystrom Furniture are absolutely phenomenally cool! Comprised of a white mid-century era thick heavy cast plastic ( think Kartel or Joe Columbo ) barrel shaped chair arms and frames with a baby blue faux leather seat and back upholstery swiveling on a white cast aluminum and steel tulip chair style painted base. They are in awesome original condition. The plastic has yellowed slightly but has no cracks or chips or noticeable scratches.

The Daystrom Furniture company began by producing metal ashtrays in Olean, New York in 1934 but soon started manufacturing chromium kitchen furniture. In the 1960s they were a leading producer of kitchen dinettes and developed designs in metal, vinyl, laminate, acrylics, and, being one of the first users of, particle board. Ted Van Benschoten was the design director for Daystrom during the 1970s so most likely had a hand in the design of this pair of great Mid Mod chairs.

This pair of chairs is unusual and fun and you know you need them for your own.
