With a nod to the immense popularity of Charles Eames's swivel lounge chair and ottoman, Wormley capitalized on the popularity of his own stationary, winged lounge chair and ottoman (model 5761) and adapted it as model 6142 retaining its iconic tilted look, shaped wings, 'T' cushion. The tufted back was changed to a thick two section seat back, the arms received thicker, over scaled padding and both chair and matching ottoman were set on swiveling pedestal bases of shaped walnut legs each unit tilted inversely to each other with distinctive, thick round brass discs as glides. Despite Dunbar press releases calling the duo "One of the most elegant pieces in the Dunbar line..." and "Quietly inviting-a mood of timeless comfort is designed into this chair." sales were not reflective of Wormley's enthusiasm for it, hindered perhaps by its rather lofty pricing at the time. The chair had extremely low production numbers and was only produced for two sales seasons, Fall 1961 to Fall 1963.
