President Obama Trying Different Swivel Chairs

May 9, 2009 at 9:41 pm 2 comments

We found a picture of President Barak Obama trying different swivel chairs in the Oval Office before settling on the CONCORDE Presidential that had been presented to President George W. Bush by Global Group of Canada. The CONCORDE Presidential is the huge black office chair with padded armrests on the far right in the picture below.

The following other pictures show the CONCORDE Presidential Chair in use behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office after the President had made his choice. Right Choice, we think!

    Pictures of the Oval Office taken after February 2009 show the President has installed the red chair which is next to the American Flag – is that also made by Chellgrove?

      Hi Paul, You are right! I’ve just gone through the whole set of photos released to mark President Obama’s first 100 days in office. I can confirm that President Obama used the CONCORDE Presidential Chair – inherited from President George W. Bush – until 29th January. President Obama then had a morning session trying a number of alternative chairs and settled on the red chair next to the American flag in the picture above.

      I shall present a full set of pictures here on the Chellgrove blog very soon. Including a really great photo of the President sitting on his new chair.

      To answer your question Paul, Chellgrove sells the CONCORDE Presidential Chair in the UK, but we do not sell the new chair. I have not (yet) been able to find out who makes the new chair.
