By 1921 "Steelcase" was the company's trademark and metal desks were being designed with the inspiration of the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. These metal desks were part of the S.C.Johnson and Company building design by Wright and built in Racine, Wisconsin 1936 to 1939.

6We're always looking for more though and what we recently came upon were this pair of vintage Steelcase office chairs. The tags on the chairs show they are original Steelcase and were purchased by the Pennsylvania Bell Telephone Company in 1978 (a fine year to be born I must say). One of the chairs swivels and tilts and the other is stationary. The orange upholstery is obviously a statement, but a fun one. And we have to say, they are really comfortable!
