Vancouver police are searching for two chairs, valued at about $40,000 each, stolen during a break-in at a furniture store in Coal Harbour last month.

Just after 3 a.m. on May 13, police say thieves broke into Lloyd Bruce Home Collections and stole the two armchairs.

The thieves left in a white Ford F150 pickup. The chairs, designed by famed Italian designer Roberto Cavalli , are described as having gold serpent arms and are believed to be the only two of their kind in Canada.

Police have two suspects. They describe the first as a man with a slim build wearing white runners, blue jeans, a white belt, dark hoodie, baseball cap and gloves.

The other male suspect has a medium build and was wearing dark pants, dark sneakers with white laces, a dark hoodie jacket and a baseball hat.

Vancouver police Sgt. Jason Robillard says cops believe the suspects targeted the furniture store to steal the two armchairs.

“We are hopeful that someone will recognize these unique chairs and call investigators,” he said.

Anyone with information about this break-in, or the location of the armchairs, is asked to call the VPD’s property-crime unit at 604-717-0610 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
