ROMANTIC & WHITE FLEA MARKET STYLE - press back chair





A crystal lamp with deconstructed shade, a stack of vintage sheet music, an orchard fruit basket, and a vintage white distressed press back chair, all these things represent romantic flea market style.





What could be more romantic than a turn of the century white press back chair?



The name Press Back actually means exactly that.
The pretty detail in the chair back has been pressed into the
 wood with an etched metal plate. The process came about in
 the late 1800's as a cheap and quick answer for retailers.
Stores like Sears or Larkin could now make decorative
 furniture to compete with the intricate carvings of the mid-
century.  Now the press back chairs that have survived over
 the years are quite sought after especially for shabby chic decorating.

I have re-enforced the chair, and I built the table from parts.
