eBay Find of the Day: Bertoia Chair

A modern classic.

Designed by Harry Bertoia for Knoll in 1952, the iconic Bertoia Side Chair is constructed of powder-coated wire formed into a metal filigree that sits atop a steel frame. Today, the proliferation of licensed reproductions from companies like Design Within Reach (which run hundreds of dollars) and knockoffs (like West Elm's Wire Mesh Chair) prove that the appeal of this simple but striking seating endures.

Want the real thing without spending a bundle? Check out this original up for auction on eBay.

Current bid: $10.

I am apparently not being very vigilant in my ebay shopping!
