Dinner was often a late-evening, formal affair in Elvis’ home, starting at 9 or 10 p.m. with everyone gathering in the dining room and dressing for the occasion. The fare typically included Elvis’ Southern favorites like pork chops, crisp bacon, meatloaf, or the famous fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. The large dining room of Elvis’ Chino Canyon Drive home in Palm Springs was decorated in true 1970s fashion with these high-back, green suede and wood trimmed dining chairs surrounding the table. Décor in the 1970s was a transition from the high modern style of the 1960s to an embrace of natural form and earth tones. This era, hallmarked by self-expression, was known for wall-to-wall carpet, wood paneling and the ranch-style house. Elvis’ Palm Springs ranch home was purchased by Elvis and Priscilla in April 1970 and was quickly remodeled to include the addition of a swimming pool. The house would be dubbed “Graceland West.” This pair of Elvis-owned and used dining room chairs in green each measure 55 inches (139.7 cm) high, 25 inches (63.5 cm) wide and 19 inches (48.26 cm) deep, and emanate from the 1999 Graceland Archives Auction (lot B173). The pair of chairs is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the 1999 Graceland Archives auction and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



While all the upholstery is intact, there is moderate to heavy staining on the seat surfaces. There are many scuffs and scratches along the wood trim. Excellent condition overall.
