Would You Buy a Hanging Chair?

I spotted this chair in photos from the new Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning flick The Runaways, out today, about Joan Jett's 1970s all-girl rock band. The set designer really nailed this one on the head, seeing as hanging chairs were in their heyday in the '70s — especially after Eero Aarnio debuted his iconic Bubble Chair in 1968. The chair looks fab here with its corduroy cushions and that groovy labyrinthian wallpaper. But I fear a hanging chair would look too dated out of context. What do you say? Would you buy one?
