Koken Barber Chairs

Koken Barber Chairs

By now, you should probably know who Ernest Koken is. He was the man who, in 1906, developed the first barber chair. He was born in Germany, although his family moved back to the US (to St. Louis, Missouri). He was forced to leave school after his father’s death.

He was pretty much an artist. While working selling items for barber shops, he developed a reclining barber chair, got the patent and started making money straight away from his invention, as it was a complete success.
Nowadays, there are many chairs you can find with the name “Koken” engraved on them.

But what most people don’t know is that he was designing a gasoline engine when he died, so who knows what might have happened if he had managed to finish it a little bit earlier?

That said, Koken Chairs are very much looked after, because of its design and first class quality. If you ever get your hands on one, you should check out its real value, you might be surprised how people are willing to pay thousands of dollars for one real Antique Koken Chair.
