Earlier in the winter I painted a variety of wooden chairs, one with an upholstered seat.
They were all pretty much vintage, and the upholstered one, clearly an antique, probably late 19thC or early 20th C.
Actually this carved , below, one looks pretty old: maybe Art&Crafts, or "Bungalow" style, from the 20s or 30s.
Chairs are very fiddly; the rungs and spokes can drive you mad . They require a lot of patience and detailed observation.
These two are matching (well, sort of!) swivel chairs. Bar stool height.
It was a lot of fun painting them, and they are beginning to find happy homes!
I have some pictures of the upholstry up next.
