Joan blogs at Nicer Than New.  When she spotted this chair on the curb in her neighbourhood, she made a u-turn and loaded it up, duct tape and all.  On closer inspection, she discovered that the chair was made of teak in Denmark.   “By the tag, I also believe he was a big deal during the ’70s,” Joan says.
