6 White Fine Furniture Asian Ming Chinoiserie Style White Lacquer Dining Chairs

About the Item

Handsome off-white Asian style, Ming style, or Chinoiserie set of six dining chairs by White Fine Furniture. They are in wonderful vintage condition. There are a few nicks and dings as you would expect for their age but nothing outstanding. We call that patina. The loose seat cushions are useable, but most will want to replace. Please see photos. NOTE: We do have a matching dining room table and display china cabinet listed separately if you are so inclined. This set of six Asian style dining chairs are fabulous! They would look great around an Asian style or traditional table, but they would look even more stunning in juxtaposition around a mid-century modern or industrial dining table. You could use them alone or add a pair of host and hostess chairs in a complementary shape and design. They are comprised of a wood frame that boasts a lovely off-white lacquer rather marbleized finish. Their gently curving Ming style sides and center splat along with caned seats, which are covered with a loose cushion, provide just the right amount of comfort for a long leisurely dinner. They are extremely sturdy and well-made by White Fine furniture of Mebane, North Carolina circa 1970s. White Fine Furniture was founded in 1881 in Mebane, North Carolina by brothers, David A. and William E. White. Their father, Stephen A. White, was the co-founder of Mebane. Unfortunately, he had soiled the family name by acquiring a great amount of debt and his sons vowed to repay their father’s creditors. Thus, was the catalyst behind their venture. It was incorporated as White-Rickel Furniture Company in 1896 but by 1899 Rickel had relinquished his interest and the name was changed to White Furniture Company. They repaid their father’s debts and more. They were always a cutting-edge company and were the first Southern furniture manufacturer to utilize electricity. In 1905 they were awarded a contract with the US government to supply furniture to military personnel working in the Panama Canal. Later supplying furniture for army officers throughout the US and the Far East. They’ve won awards and furnished the famed Grove Park Inn. My research did not uncover when exactly they began calling themselves White FINE Furniture but fine it was. Unfortunately, as with many US furniture and other manufacturers, the 1980s hit hard. They were purchased by Hickory Furniture Company and eventually closed the doors in 1993 after over 100 years of fine furniture building. We love these chairs here at the shop. We know you will love them too. Make them yours.
