"Until very recently people were literally scared out of their wits by color. Perhaps this was a hangover from our Puritan ancestors. But whatever the reason, brown, grays and neutrals were the only shades considered 'safe'. Now we know that lovely, clear colors have a vital effect on our mental happiness." - Dorothy Draper; 'Decorating is Fun' 1939. This lovely Neoclassical style arm chair is sure to have a positive effect on your mental happiness! The carved wood frame has an antiqued ivory finish with green painted accents and a caned back. The feather filled seat cushion is upholstered in a charmingly cheerful pink gingham fabric. There is no makers label, but the quality is top notch. 34" h., 24" w., 24" d. American, c. late 20th c. $450.00
