Vintage Find: 1980 Office Chair

January 13, 2011

I have been looking for an office chair for a very long time now.  I have seen plenty I like but nothing worthy of making the trip home with me.  Some are pricey then I want to spend and many will not work with my partner’s office chair.  Since he and I share a desk they need to have some coordination, right?

Well, the search ended this week.  During a thrift store shopping trip with a friend I discovered the perfect chair for my desk!  Get this, it was only $12.99.  How could I not bring it home?

This little beauty was made in 1980 by the Canadian manufacture Galaxy Office Furniture.  It is in prefect condition, but I will be changing the upholstery.  I’m thinking a nice black vinyl.

Cannot wait to get this great find cleaned up and begin the search for new upholstery.
