Extending The "Ladder" On A Ladder Back Chair to Display Vintage Tablecloths Or Textiles

Creating Vertical Display Space For Textiles And Vintage Tablecloths

Here is a terrific way to display vintage tablecloths and textiles. Find an old Ladder Back chair and then extend the "ladder' to have an ideal rack for displaying dry goods. I wish I could tell you that I was the inventor of this object d'art but I am only the photographer and the messenger of funky ideas. This whimsical display was spotted at Anthropologie in Connecticut.
