1950s pair of 2 bar ladder back kitchen chairs, Autentico painted and reupholstered
The original vinyl seat cover has been re-upholstered with a great cotton fabric that manages to feel contemporary while also evoking 50's design. A further pop of colour has been given to breath new life into these chairs, a beautiful turquoise and a sunshine Autentico paint has been used.
This type of ladder back chair (and its three barred cousin) were ubiquitous in the 1950s, gracing a huge proportion of the nation's kitchens. They were fantastically well made, and are usually as solid today as they were when the were first built. These two bar chairs are no exception, with tight joints and no wobble whatsoever.
The Autentico paint was bought from the lovely Mrs Feathers of Mrs Feathers Emporium
