Blue Quilted Chintz Original Cabbage Rose Floral Hollywood Regency Club Chair

$1,595

About

Gorgeous Hollywood Regency upholstered club chair with original quilted blue chintz cabbage rose floral print fabric by J and S Furniture Mfg. Co. (Although its shape if you don’t at the fabric is very Art Deco or Mid Century Modern like Jean Michel-Frank) The fabric has been professionally cleaned and for some reason it seems to have brought out some markings or dye spots that are faint but noticeable up close. They somehow seem like part of the pattern but were not there before cleaning. The chair is in excellent condition wear wise. It is priced accordingly. Please see photos. Circa 1972. Need a little relaxation in your life? Well, it doesn’t get any better than this Super comfortable floral print club chair! Its style is Hollywood Regency with a little Boho Chic flair, and the fabulous, ORIGINAL quilted light blue cabbage floral chintz fabric gives it a splash of southern or cottage style charm. Iconic influential designers such as Mario Buatta, A.K.A… “The Prince of Chintz,” and the legendary Sister Parish are both well known for their love and designs that included such beautiful patterns as this cabbage rose floral chintz print. This fabric has been professionally cleaned and for some reason it seems to have brought out dye spots or markings that are faint but there. However, it does not distract from its over-all beauty. Gorgeous colors of silky green leaves, delicate blue iris, and soft white roses on tangled brown branches…all upon a light sky-blue background. Just magnificent!! Just lay back and close your eyes and suddenly, you are overcome with a serene feeling of lying in a meadow somewhere looking up at the light blue sky as you softly doze into your daydream. Unmatchable comfort and a fashionable statement. (But if you are looking for an Art Deco or Mid-Century Modern club chair reupholstered this one will fill the bill!) Known as the “Prince of Chintz” for his use of lush, floral prints, and also “The King of Clutter,” Mario Buatta was greatly influenced by English interior design, especially the Regency period, and known for rooms that evoked the English country house. Buatta was unusual in the interior design profession in working almost always alone describing himself as “married to his business.” He designed for many famous clients including Mariah Carey, Henry Ford II, Malcom Forbes, Barbara Walters, Billy Joel, and Nelson Doubleday just to name a few. His most extensive work was Carolands which was a ninety-two-room chateau located in Hillsborough, California. Sister Parish was an American interior decorator and socialite. She was born Dorothy May Kinnicutt in 1910 (the nickname Sister, given her by a brother, stuck) The lady with the misleadingly ecclesiastical name Sister Parish did nevertheless believe in the divine power of decoration, in the healing properties of glamour and romance. For six decades she held the reins of taste, never loosening her formidable grip on a certain kind of cozy old-money look, part opulent, part hand-me-down. Over the ensuing decades her client list would ring with such sonorous names as Astor, Vanderbilt, Whitney, Rockefeller, and, most familiarly, Kennedy. She had once decorated a Georgetown house for the young Massachusetts senator and his wife, Sister was once again retained by Jacqueline Kennedy to do up a residence for the couple—the private family quarters in the White House, including the oval drawing room on the second floor, where the president liked to receive foreign dignitaries. We are in Love with this beautiful Chintz fabric club chair, and we think Mr Buatta and Sister Parish would too! You Must make it yours!
