banana chair

This chair is great. It has been in the cupboard for years because there
hasn't been room for it, but since our rearrangements we found some
space. I haven't been sleeping much during night time for about a week
now due to sweltering heat and murderous hayfever. Managed to grab an
hour in front of the cricket just now. Woke up with my feet in the air
and my head full of blood, but damn my back feels great!

Did you find out where to buy a banana chair? If so, where?

martwine says:

Sorry everyone, this is one is 25+ years old and originally belonged to the parents of a friend of mine, who passed it on to their son, who gave it to a friend, who left it at our house. Best I can suggest is making one yourself. Or look on ebay.

jenny says:

This looks like the earlier version - I have one and they made me a special stand for it so i could use it for giving reflexology treatments - i know someone else who has one who may be willing to sell theirs if you are still wanting one
