For us music fans where we sit can be important....so I was looking for (awhile) a "new" listening chair.
I wanted something with terrific aesthetics but most importantly was "fit".
I have a neurological illness and great support and a level of firmness was becoming more important as the illness has worsened. The good ole cushy Lazy Boy was no longer the best for my body.

Enter - a 1968 R. Huber Scoop Lounge Chair -

A classic lounge chair from the 1960s modern era designed and manufactured by R. Huber & Co. of Canada. Extremely comfortable with tons of Danish Mid-Century Modern character. Features a solid teak frame with sculpted armrests and low button tufted scoop seat.

Knocking on 50 years old (the chair) and as solid as a rock!! Here it is in my listening room....just arrived today.

Super comfy!!

Beautiful. The side table goes nicely. Is there a matching ottoman?
I could really use a better listening chair. My back has been feeling it lately.

That's a beauty! For years I sat on an Ikea Poang, which is also a good audio chair, and cheap! Not nearly as nice as that one though.

Very funky looking chair.

Noticed you have it in the corner, do you find the bass is a bit exaggerated in this configuration?

Judging by the consumer reviews, you would be best to grab the floor model.
seems as though you have a 50/50 chance of having a good one delivered.

I had an Ikea Poang for a while, but made the mistake of buying the leather upholstery! Due to the high back, the leather reflected treble in a nasty way around my ears. In the end I took an old 'Danish Modern' chair and had my upholstery guy (yup, I have a guy) re-do the cushions and cover them with some very expensive remnants he had - never looked back! Unfortunately the chair is in storage for the moment, so no photo.

So my question is - how does the chair sound? :lol:
