Vintage Chairs- Guess The Eras

This weekend I made a mental vow not to buy anything until I noticed a "Thrift Store" sign on the side of the road. Of course I turned in abruptly- who wouldn't?

This small church Thrift Store was neat and organized. I left with two vintage books (one a "Learn to do everything" handyman guide and the other a cook book) two poster-sized frames for $2 each ($26+ retail) and two amazing vintage chairs.

The chair on the left looks like a vintage diner-style chair. It could be from the early 50s or late 40s but I can't be sure. The chair on the right looks like it's a mid century modern chair from the 50s. The chair on the right was $3 and the chair on the left was $5.

The elderly man who sold the chairs couldn't understand my interest in these old dusty chairs. But I know you understand. What era do you think these chairs are from?

  1. I'd say the chair on the left is 1940s and the other is Danish Modern, 1959-1964...

  2. That would be lovely if you are correct. Can't wait to clean up and use these beauties. :)

  3. I'd say the chair on the left is from the late 50s and I think the chair on the right is from the 60s. Great buys you found! Pam @ Sallygoodin

  4. I am going to agree with Pam. The white one looks like a kitchen set my parents had before I was born, bent tube frame, and the other looks like I have seen in office settings but could also be from a table and chair set.
    Good prices.

  5. I'd say the chair on the left is late 40s, early 50s and the one on the right is 1930s? Very good find!

  6. These are so cute! I don't know what eras they are, but I do know you got some good finds!
