Side chair newly upholstered with the Strawberry Thief
reproduction from my 2015 Best of Morris for Moda.
There are no labels on the chairs.
They aren't Stickley---at least I couldn't find any like this online.

And they are quite short--although I can't see that they have been cut down.
They make great side chairs.
(I'm really trying to make my new 1970's house
Mid-Century Modern but it keeps turning out Arts and Crafts.)
See my mid-century modern chairs at this post:
It's a good thing it's a big house as these pairs of chairs have so little in common.
I can't find a thing about these fumed oak chairs with 12 square spindles. I bought them because they looked so Frank Lloyd Wright.
He did several similar chairs
but none like mine.
And I found this Liberty inlaid spindle chair at the Victoria and Albert Museum in
London last summer.
I think mine might be a knock-off, perhaps for children.
I knew I wanted to re-upholster the chairs in the Strawberry Thief
but I had to wait till I received some yardage. The Best
of Morris won't be in shops till February, 2015. Moda airmails
me some early. (Lucky me!)
The Strawberry Thief print is done in three colorways in this line.
It was hard to choose but I decided on the black and blue-green.
