Product Details:

The Streit Slumber chair came in a variety of styles, but this was the only modern style in a deco look that came out. In all of our research we found a number of them in the more traditional antique styles, but not any available in the art deco mid-century modern style of this chair. We can not be certain that the upholstery is original, but it is a style typical of the mid-century era. The foam and comfort of the chair is still great. The style of this chair is called "The New Yorker" which certainly fits its cutting edge style for a recliner, lounge chair. Below is an archived ad we found that explains why this was such a special chair in its time.
STREIT SLUMBER CHAIR LADIES' HOME JOURNAL 11/01/1950 p. 123
You can see the style we have on the right of the ad and its model number. It also describes all of the super cool features of this chair. This chair is not only cool swank comfort it is also a conversation piece when you know its history.
Imperfections: Although the chair is in overall great vintage condition, we did find that the reclining mechanism does need some work. It is set to be more in the reclining position, which is still very comfortable makes lounging to read or watch your favorite episodes of Mad Men an extra special experience. There are some wear spots on the back of the arms pictured in the photos and a very small discoloration stain on one of the arms also pictured. 
Shipping Dimensions: The ottoman is 15 lbs., 23.5" x 17" x 14" and the chair is 70lbs., 38" deep x 31.5" wide x 30" tall at back in reclined position.
