Craigslist freebie of the day: Retro gynecology chair

Looks uh, comfy

Looks uh, comfy

The perfect piece of furniture can really tie the whole room together, turn a house into a home. You want something that’s not only comfortable, but that has good design and sturdy craftsmanship. And everyone is always saying how things were just made more solidly back in the day, so why shouldn’t you grab a gynecology chair from back in the 50s to serve as the centerpiece of your living room?

The owner of the chair says that they’ve been using it as a piece of kitschy furniture, and before that it was a prop in a painting. No word on whether it was used for weird sex games or too literal interpretations of playing doctor, but that doesn’t have to stop you from doing those things. And if you do, then you can laugh quietly to yourself when your friends sit in it.
