One of a pair of mahogany barrel-back chairs with open arms and backs filled with caning and brown leather cushions on seat and arms were used in Mr. Reynolds' office at Reynolda House. Various historical decorative motifs have been adapted to create chairs suitable for use in an office of the early 20th century, including reeding on the legs and small square carved rosettes marking the transition from frame to legs.

This barrel-back chair with out-scrolled arms has walnut cabriole front legs with shell-carved knees and pad feet. The shells end in ram’s horns at the top that demarcate the “ears” at the top of the front legs. Bellflowers descend from the shells. The shells, bellflowers, and feet are painted a darker brown to contrast with the natural color of the walnut. The back walnut legs curve gracefully backward toward small pad feet.
