chairs I refreshed were very similar to this one in the photo. I believe my chairs were from the 40's or 50's but I think its so cool to similar chairs used in a design book from the 1920's. The caption to the right reads:
One of the achievements of Thomas Chippendale, that versatile genius responsible for so much in the way of fine furniture design, was the adaptation of exotic Chinese motifs to the sturdy lines of current English furniture. The chair and hanging shelves in this room are designed in the Chinese taste and pieces are placed against a softly tones, flowered wall paper.
Just thought I'd share!
