Modernist Quadrants

When I was very young, my family had sling chairs (also known as "butterfly" chairs) in the living room. They were the height of late 50s modernity. They looked great but once you sat in one, you could barely get out. Sometimes you had to tip over the chair to free yourself from it. Here's a modernist abstraction to go with your butterfly chairs and your free-form glass topped coffee table. Slick.

OK, for once I won't be positive. I hate this kind of abstract. Now, your shadding is nice but I suspect it is computer done.

Well, Tristan, I guess I can't win 'em all. I happen to love the cheesy designs of the '50s and early '60s. If they had computers then, they'd do them digitally, too. OK, they did have computers, but they were the size of an apartment and they had less computing power than your cellphone.
