Drexel Declaration Walnut Dining Chairs by Kipp Stewart and Stewart MacDougall Set 6

Drexel Declaration Walnut Dining Chairs by Kipp Stewart and Stewart MacDougall Set 6

I know I say this quite often, but we are totally in love with these Drexel Declaration dining chairs here at our shop! They were designed in the 1950s by design duo Kipp Stewart and Stewart MacDougall. The Declaration line was one of the most renowned and popular lines for Drexel during the mid-20th century and its classic shapes and quality construction has made it highly desirable again today. The chairs are comprised of a svelte simple shape of gorgeous walnut with a diamond rosewood detail inlay; and, although these chairs are deemed mid-century modern and made during that time frame, I have always felt the subtle curve and draped effect of the back support has a rather Art Deco flair. We have covered the seats in a simple neutral natural canvas that can be used or easily changed.

Kipp Stewart, a celebrated American designer, born in 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania did not lead a charmed childhood. Sent to California to live with distant relatives at a young age, you could call him a self-made man. His furniture designing fate was sealed at 15 when hitchhiking to school he passed a storefront shop and studio on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles with pencil industrial drawings in the windows and fell in love with them. Kipp worked hard, turning down a track and field scholarship at USC and instead enrolled at Chouinard Art Institute in the late 1940s. Again, he worked very hard days and nights becoming a renowned artist, architect, and award-winning designer. He currently resides in Carmel, California and is still painting.

Alexander Stewart Orton MacDougall was born in the late 1920s in Pasadena and grew up in a Green and Green house which he credits for his fascination and love of design. Judged early with a learning disability which he obviously overcame, Stewart attended Chouinard Art Institute after a short time in the Navy. He then went to work for Victor Gruen and Associates where he met his mentor Rudolf Baumfeld who had studied under Le Corbusier. With this association, his design and artistry paths were sealed. Striving always for simple lines without fussiness. It is clearly apparent throughout his work whether in furniture, boats, golf clubs, or sculpture. He currently splits his time between Montecito, California and Nantucket with his wife of many many years and lifetime muse, still working on projects each day.

Drexel Furniture Company was founded in 1903 in Drexel, North Carolina by six businessmen for a total investment of $14,000.00. Sam Huffman, one of the initial founders, managed the enterprise until his death in 1935 when his son, Robert O. Huffman took the helm. By 1950 under the younger Huffman’s leadership Drexel had grown from a small factory to a leader in furniture manufacturing. They acquired other furniture companies along the way and by the late 1950s employed 2300 workers. The 1960s had them adding industrial and hospitality furniture to their lines. In 1968 they were purchased, and Drexel Enterprises became Drexel Heritage Furnishings, Inc. They continued to add to their styles and lines and were sold again and then in 1986 became part of Masco Corporation one of the country’s largest furniture manufacturers. They are now based in High Point, NC and operate ten factories in North Carolina and one in South Carolina and are one of the leading furniture manufacturers in the world.

This is an iconic piece of Mid-Century Modern furniture design and should be yours.

Set of Four Antique Victorian Hairpin Back Dining Chairs

Set of Four Antique Victorian Hairpin Back Dining Chairs

This set of four walnut hairpin back antique Victorian dining chairs need a little love but they sure have great lines and good bones. The design of the chair is so simple yet exceptionally attractive with their waisted hairpin or balloon backs, spindled center splat, and turned front legs. The smooth finish and warmth of the wood makes you want to reach out and caress them. I would call their condition distressed. They still have their original black leather-like upholstery with nailhead trim and, although it is far beyond usable, it gives you the IDEA of their once grand appearance and what they can be again. The joints do need regluing but they would not fall apart if used. These are wonderful antiques to be treasured for generations to come.

Vintage Set of 10 Georgian Revival Chippendale Style Upholstered Dining Chairs

Vintage Set of 10 Georgian Revival Chippendale Style Upholstered Dining Chairs

This is a fabulous set of Georgian Revival Chippendale style dining chairs consisting of two-armed host and hostess chairs and eight armless side chairs. The beautiful mahogany has a few nicks, dings and scratches as you would expect from these circa 1930’s set of chairs, I call that patina; however, the structure is solid. The footless Marlborough style front legs are adorned with fabulous egg and dart style carving as is the swooped arms of the host chairs. The lower cross stretcher is arched and carved for a beautiful detail. They were reupholstered sometime in the 1970’s with a fun flame-stitch fabric which has come and gone and come again. It is in great condition if you would like to use them as is; but, although the flame-stitch is fun, these would be spectacular done in silk, velvet, a beautiful leather, or even hair-on cowhide! Make these yours and let the fun begin.

Art Nouveau or Art Deco Shield Back Antique Dining Chairs Set of Four

Art Nouveau or Art Deco Shield Back Antique Dining Chairs Set of Four

These gorgeous chairs have really puzzled us here at the shop. Are they Art Nouveau? Are they Art Deco? Or, maybe a little Victorian? They also have a somewhat Asian flair. Hmmmmm? No matter what style they are, they are stunning! The wood of their curvy shield back outlines the fabric beautifully and I can’t decide which is more lovely….the back or the front. The seat has a generous depth with a gently inward curve on both sides for the sitter’s comfort. The legs are simple. The front ones are straight, and the back have a slight curve. But their stretchers from front to back are exceptional…straight at first and then a spiral, arch, and curve. There is a cross stretcher attached at the highest point going side to side. The details abound. And, their ivory colored upholstery accents the frame perfectly. So, we may not know what style to definitively call these…but you should call them yours!

Dining Chairs Attributed to ModernMates by Leslie Diamond for Conant Ball, Set 5

Dining Chairs Attributed to ModernMates by Leslie Diamond for Conant Ball, Set 5

Boy, do these chairs have an interesting story. And they are fabulous to gaze upon not to mention set in. They are attributed to Conant Ball’s ModernMates collection even though they are not marked. Conant Ball was notoriously sloppy in marking their pieces and it has even been found that they mismarked some pieces. Leading somewhat to my next statement. These chairs and the ModernMates collection were designed by Leslie Diamond and NOT Russel Wright as is so commonly quoted. It doesn’t matter who designed these beautiful chairs. They are a feast for the eyes with their fluid wave continual seat and back supported by wonderful turned and tapered legs. Simple and stunning.

The Conant Ball Furniture Company was founded in Gardner, Massachusetts in the late 1800s. It was well known for producing wooden Colonial Revival furniture reproduction chairs but soon expanded into bedroom furnishings and dining room sets. In the 1930s Russel Wright designed a line of furniture for them called American Modern named for his line of dishware. It has been long thought that many of the other modern lines by Conant Ball were also designed by him but recently it has come to light that many of these subsequent designs are by Leslie Diamond. Conant Ball closed its door in 1980. Many of its designs whether by Russel Wright, Leslie Diamond, or an unknown designer have come to be highly desirable which speaks volumes about their high quality and great lines.

White Fine Furniture Asian Ming Chinoiserie Style Off White Lacquer Dining Chairs Six

This set of six Asian style dining chairs are fabulous! They would look great around an Asian style or traditional table, but they would look even more stunning in juxtaposition around a mid-century modern or industrial dining table. You could use them alone or add a pair of host and hostess chairs in a complementary shape and design. They are comprised of a wood frame that boasts a lovely off-white lacquer rather marbleized finish. Their gently curving Ming style sides and center splat along with caned seats, which are covered with a loose cushion, provide just the right amount of comfort for a long leisurely dinner. They are extremely sturdy and well-made by White Fine furniture of Mebane, North Carolina circa 1970s.

White Fine Furniture was founded in 1881 in Mebane, North Carolina by brothers, David A. and William E. White. Their father, Stephen A. White, was the co-founder of Mebane. Unfortunately, he had soiled the family name by acquiring a great amount of debt and his sons vowed to repay their father’s creditors. Thus, was the catalyst behind their venture. It was incorporated as White-Rickel Furniture Company in 1896 but by 1899 Rickel had relinquished his interest and the name was changed to White Furniture Company. They repaid their father’s debts and more. They were always a cutting-edge company and were the first Southern furniture manufacturer to utilize electricity. In 1905 they were awarded a contract with the US government to supply furniture to military personnel working in the Panama Canal. Later supplying furniture for army officers throughout the US and the Far East. They’ve won awards and furnished the famed Grove Park Inn. My research did not uncover when exactly they began calling themselves White FINE Furniture but fine it was. Unfortunately, as with many US furniture and other manufacturers, the 1980s hit hard. They were purchased by Hickory Furniture Company and eventually closed the doors in 1993 after over 100 years of fine furniture building.

Pair Vintage Milo Baughman 1188 Dining Chairs in White

Pair Vintage Milo Baughman 1188 Dining Chairs in White

The 1188 chair by Milo Baughman is touted as being his favorite chairs. He even chose it to use in the home of his business partner Thayer Coggin. The Milo Baughman 1188 chair was designed in 1968 for Thayer Coggin and is still in production today. This pair does not have a tag and hence age is hard to determine; but, the upholstery seems to be of the early era. This vintage pair of 1188 chairs are in great visual condition however, there have been some repairs.  One chair was welded where the seat meets the legs and has darkening in that spot which is approximately 1/2 inch in size. The other chair was repaired not with welding but with hidden angle brackets installed. The white upholstery has no wear just needs a little shampoo! We have not tried to redo any of the repairs or clean the upholstery. We leave that to the buyer to decide what they would like to do.

Mid Century Modern Lane Alta Vista Dining Chairs Set of Six Original Stripe Upholstery

Wow! The modern style of these Lane Alta Vista dining chairs is fantastic! They are marked on the underside with style number 493/72 and serial number 476060 which dates them to June 6, 1974. However, I have yet to determine the collection name. I love their bold wood frames with the slight curve to the back. They could border on being a Brutalist design. All retain their original striped fabric of varying widths in colors of oatmeal, black, brown, and orange. It is in wonderful condition and could be used if it suits you. Their tall backs have a four-button detail, as do their seats, which adds to their mid-century modern tailored style. I’m sure you will love these as we do. Make them yours.

Pair Black Art Deco and Animal Print Side Chairs Cast Aluminum by Crucible Products Corp.

Pair Black Art Deco and Animal Print Side Chairs Cast Aluminum by Crucible Products Corp.

What’s better than Art Deco and animal print? Nothing! Unless it is Art Deco animal print chairs like this vintage pair from Crucible Products Corp. and attributed to David Weinstock. These chairs have a cast aluminum frame that has a black painted finish and upholstered seat and back. A great sturdy petite pair of side chairs that could be used anywhere. So lovely to view. We think, their gently curving back, cinched in waist, and flared legs make them look like they would be more at home on the fashion runway than around a table. Especially with that wonderful black and tan animal print fabric they are sporting. Maybe they need to be in your dressing room. Somehow, they give me the feeling they could almost take off walking on their own. A couple of us here at the shop think they are more Hollywood Regency than Art Deco. But who cares!? A rose is still a rose. Right? They’re fabulous and should be yours!

Real Bamboo Asian Dining Chairs Set of 4

RPL-Real Bamboo Asian Dining Chairs Set of 4

Here for your pleasure is an absolutely fabulous unsual and unique set of 4 real bamboo Asian dining chairs.  Totally constructed of actual bamboo (even the seat slats are bamboo) these chairs have a lot of strenth in style, character and construction.  Even though they creak and crack and look a little fragile they are very well made and strong. I would say the size of the bamboo used is more of a construction bamboo. The legs and seat edge are made of one piece of bamboo that is cut on the underside and bent to create a front leg, the seat edge, and a back leg. So wonderful. And, there is no visible form of attachment other than slits and slots in the bamboo. Let the photos speak for themselves on how cool these chairs are.  We know nothing for sure about the age, what the Asian writing says or what country they are from; but, we do know they are fabulous!  And we feel they are 20th century and from China. None are identical.  In our showroom I place a pillow in the seat for more comfort and very versital look.  You can add your own spark of color.

We have only included individual photos of one chair but can add or send photos of the other three if needed. Condition is the same and very good on all chairs.

They were a family owned business in Pittsburgh, Texas from the early 1900s to sometime in the 1990s. It is reported the company was founded by Danish immigrants and passed down through the generations. I have observed that during the mid-century modern era their designs have a definite Danish Modern flair.
