Joe Colombo Elda armchair now available in the UK


A few months back, I bemoaned the fact that you couldn't buy arguably Joe Colombo's most famous creation - the Elda Chair - in the UK. Well, my plea seems to have been heard, with the chair now available in this country.

Which makes me very happy, although that's tempered considerably by the price. The Elda is the space age era in a seat, actually dating back to 1963, but best known for its appearances in sci-fi movies and TV shows of the early 70s - an episode of Space 1999 wasn't complete without one.

On the technical side, the swivel chair is made of reinforced ABS plastic, with an plush interior of contrasting leather. If life's been kind to you of late, you can pick one up for £3,518 - and re-live an era every time you sit in it.
