This pair of 1940s mahogany roseback dining chairs will look as elegant in your home as they did the day they were produced. This set was truly a joy to reimagine, as underneath the midcentury modern yarn upholstery was a lush Waverly floral print fabric in fabulous condition...and then the original navy upholstery! They were freshened up with a velvety soft, delicately patterned fabric in creamy neutrals. Two sets of throw pillows were created using the existing fabric layers that were rescued prior to reupholstery. These classy old gals are feeling decades younger after their makeover and are ready to bring their chic sensibility to your home.

Pair of 1940s Tell City Roseback Chairs

  • These 1940s Tell City mahogany roseback chairs are a classic example of early American furniture. The Tell City Chair Company was founded in Tell City, Indiana in 1865 and was a prolific producer of chairs throughout the early twentieth century. This style of chair - called 'roseback' for the carved flower gracing each seat back - was common at the time. These likely originally belonged to a dining set; they were purchased secondhand in the metro Detroit area.
