1940s Swivel Chair

This little chair has great potential with a couple of options for restyling. The channel-style back can be changed to a ‘tight-back’ style with buttons. The metal arm supports are a weak point, and could be replaced with maple or walnut wood, or the arms could be eliminated altogether for an updated slipper chair style treatment. The chair’s slightly smaller size makes it unique – available for purchase by our clients or students. For students, this qualifies for an ‘Advanced Level Workshop’.

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
