Sex and the City 2: Chairs for Sale

This morning, one of my readers asked about where to find the chairs featured in the new Sex and the City 2 film and the answer came a short time later. Nicholas Manville the head of the Decorative Home Department of Bergdorf Goodman emailed me to let me know that the actual chairs from the film were sitting on the 7th floor! How exciting! After lunch, Grant K. Gibson, who is in town from San Francisco, and I headed over to check them out. They are a little hard to find since they are sitting outside the elevators on the 57th Street side of the 7th floor but are worth the hunt. The chairs were designed by T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings in the 1940's and can be yours for $16,500! If that's out of your budget, you can always go sit in them so you can say that you sat in the same chairs as Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City 2 ! You just might want to stop on the second floor first for some Louboutins to complete the experience!

Thank you so much, I was the one who asked about the chairs but alas they are out of my budget and I'm in Scotland so I can't even languish in them whilst insouciantly dangling a Louboutin clad foot.
I adore the style of these chairs.

HC,
I bet there's a bit part in some future movie where a NYC design blogger might fit in--that's you.
Enthusiasm, creativity, and all things NY.

Hi Heather, You can also find several Robsjohn-Gibbings club chairs (with a slightly lower back) on 1stdibs and on VanM.com for quite a bit less---but the ones from the movie are great!! Mary

Oh, if the backs of those chairs are framed like the slipper chairs in my bedroom, they must have wonderful presence. Love. I hope they wind up in a place where they make people smile every day.

Here is a great pair on eBay. Its not just the lines of the chairs, but the neutral grey of the fabric that has everyone wanting them for any decor.
