Friday Wishlist - The Selig Z Chair

I've been on a search for some vintage mid-century modern chairs and sofas in an attempt to avoid foam cushions containing brominated fire retardants.  It's quite a task.  In my search, I stumbled upon this beautiful Danish teak chair - the Selig Z Chair.  It seems to be pretty difficult to find and Google searches are only bringing up photos of already sold chairs to make me drool even more...

I am formally educated in the art of fine woodwork and custom furniture makeing. I hand craft Poul Jensen Selig-inspired Z couches, Z chairs and Z love seats. I have made several improvements and modifications from the original Poul Jensen Selig Z Chairs. We use only select Black Walnut heart wood for the frames. Each piece of black walnut is chosen for its color and grain quality. The chairs are more works of art than factory-assembled furniture; they are individually-produced. All joints use traditional single or double mortis and tenon joinery, we use only formaldehyde-free glue. The arm rest now has a hand carved relief. Its smooth stippled surface is a mark of craftsmanship and artistry. The remarkably comfortable original seat geometry remains. A love seat is finally available.
