That chair to Mitch’s left looks almost like it was inspired by the Bertoia Diamond Lounge chair, a midcentury classic designed by Harry Bertoia.
The main difference is that this chair here is wood, whereas the Diamond Lounge was wire mesh and pioneered the use of that material in modern furniture design. It made Bertoia something of a design celebrity the way Mitch is something of a surf celebrity. Diamond Lounges today sell for around $1000.
Since Mitch is now a homeowner on the Sunshine Coast in Australia, he should be thinking about these things. He should be looking at that chair and wondering how it might pull a patio together. But instead he’s thinking about an empty left wedge 40 minutes away, which is all right too.
