From a pair of licorice black patent leather wing chairs to Neoclassical style chairs upholstered in weathered icy blue, Ellen Ward Scarborough Antiques has a nice array of 1940s furniture with the original upholstery intact. If you are a design student interested in the Regency-inspired or French Moderne pieces produced during the 40s, this dealer's site may be helpful. The upholstery on the chairs above reminds me of those luscious pastry boxes from the French tea-room Laduree.
