Redoing a Vintage Chair to Match Another


I was asked to redo this vintage chair...

I answered, (tongue in cheek) "Sure!"
As both chair styles are completely different, I contemplated the finished project. Well, sanding and upholstering them to be similar wouldn't be a problem. What about the overall design? It must have some turquoise on it, but where and how? This 1947 chair (stamped underneath) clearly doesn't have the character the older one has. Nor much room for add-ons.
Maybe... carving something in somewhere!

So that's what I did.
