Raising the Height of a Too-Low Chair?

Raising the Height of a Too-Low Chair?

Q: I bought this Heywood Wakefield/Lloyd sprung rocker for a song on eBay, and IMHO, it's every bit as good looking and comfortable as can be. The seat is well shaped, the amount of rock/jiggle is modest. It's almost just right. There is one drawback — turns out the chair is just too low.

It's is such a shame, since otherwise tit would be pretty much perfectly comfortable . Can anyone suggest something unobtrusive I could do to evenly raise the tubular legs? (Three of the legs have end caps- one is missing.)

I have seen some "chair raisers" on the internet, mostly designed to raise chairs and beds for invalids and the elderly, but they are cartoonishly ugly and obtrusive big blocky things, I'd just kind of like something slender, plain and tube-y that would slide over the 1/2" +/- existing legs...but am open to any and all ideas which won't spoil its looks.


Editor: This is a cool chair — but isn't part of its vintage charm that it isn't perfect? Does anyone have suggestions for Lindy?
