can't believe the arcane knowledge a person can find on this forum!

so.

What's the name of a smallish decorative chair (no picture, sorry) from the 1960's, Spanish-looking, with a very narrow back, carved wood, velvet upholstery, usually some shade of avocado?

I looks like the kind of thing that was popular in the late 60's, when everything was Spanish or Mediterranean (sp?), carved, harvest gold or avocado green, crushed velvet, etc.

I saw one at a shop & the owner said she thought she had googled "highback European vintage chair", but I got nowhere with that.

I inherited one, still has the original crushed velvet upholstery, & the only names anyone has come up with so far are "punishment chair" & "dunce chair".

which just ain't right.

crossing my fingers that someone here has an extensve knowledge of interior decorating trivia!
