Elvis dated Linda Thompson for just over four years between 1972 and 1976, and it was in 1974 that the pair undertook some renovations at Graceland, the home they shared at the time. During this redecorating, the Jungle Room saw the green carpet and furry furniture installed, the pair of custom-made blue peacock stained glass windows by Laukhuff Stained Glass were positioned to flank the doorway entrance to the music room, and the dining room was updated with new furnishings in shades of red. The offered two high-back cushioned dining chairs, one of which is an armchair, were those acquired for this dining room redesign. The red upholstered chairs with diamond patterned stitching and silver stud accents sit atop wooden legs and center brace. The high-style chairs were used at Graceland from this period in 1974 through Elvis’ death in 1977. The chairs, each measuring 60 inches (152.4 cm) in height, 23 inches (58.42 cm) in width and 22 inches (55.88 cm) in length, emanate from the 1999 Graceland Archives auction (lot C146) and are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the 1999 Graceland Archives auction and a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



Both chairs show expected signs of wear along the edges of the seat area, with areas of minor staining and several small areas of wear on the backs. Excellent condition.
