This seat fits like a ... glove

I'd never seen anything so unique - or colourful. On our first day in Long Island, we drove past an ice cream parlour that had these outdoor chairs in the late-June sunshine, so of course I had to stop to take a shot.

About a week later, we went back there, on a dual mission. Not only did I have to find out if the "chairs" were locally made, I also had to sample the ice cream as well. Turns out the chairs were ordered specially from a non-NYC manufacturer and shipped in.

And the ice cream? The Authorbloglets and I gave it a thumbs up!

Putting your life in their hands takes on a new meaning after seeing this. Very colourful.

Never seen the baseball mitt, but I almost included the hand chairs in a post I did on strange furniture. If I remember correctly, they cost about $400 each!

I've seen this sort of chair. I think I wouldn't mind having a couple of them. Were they comfortable?

Yes David - tell us.

Did you get to sit in the chairs? Were the hands like someone 'patting your butt'? Or did you feel 'caught' when you sat in the glove?

I can just hear the chairs saying, "I've got you in the palm of my hand(s). . . .have an ice cream!"

Reply:
"Get you hands off!"

I WOULD buy them, but sadly they would clash with the giant green foot I'm using for a coffee table.

Did you sit in the mit or stand near the hand?
