    Alright, you guys identified the last piece I needed in only a few minutes. Here is another.

    I absolutely fell in love with this polished aluminum chair when I first saw it in Veronica's office in Better Off Ted. Since then, I have seen it in Dr Evil's Lair in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and in the Police station in Demolition Man. I have tried to find it but have turned up nothing. Help me RPF! I want this chair!

    Is it possible that the back isn't the end result but rather is part of the frame and they've stripped off the padding?

    At a guess, it looks too heavily built and showy for that. Nice chair. Can't find it, needless to say.

    I think that is very unlikely since it is polished and the back seems to be the strong design element (the arms and seat are pretty weak in comparison).

    Is it possible that they are custom and in a prop rental place making its' rounds in movies?

    Entirely possible.

    That's a real possibility Ceno, I know I've seen that/those chair(s) in other movies.

    I keep wondering if the curve of the arm rests are any indicator of the brand. I don't know a lot about office chairs but have been trying to find a match for just the arms.

    The arms and seats look like regular office chairs to me, and someone put a custom back on it. Look at the second pic, which also seems to have had some silver paint sprayed on them.

    Yeah, I've seen those chairs show up in a number of different TV shows and movies. Probably prop rental.
