VANCOUVER - A pair of unusual armchairs valued at about $40,000 each were taken from a high-end furniture store and Vancouver police are asking for the public's help in finding them.

Police say the chairs were taken during a 3 a.m. break-in at the Lloyd Bruce Home Collections store on May 13.

The deco-style, off-white chairs designed by Roberto Cavalli have gold coloured metal arms shaped like snakes.

Two male thieves were involved and police say they left in a white, Ford F-150 pickup.

Investigators say it's clear the suspects targeted that particular store specifically to take the chairs.

Sgt. Jason Robillard says they hope someone will recognize the unique furniture and call police.
