The Gamble House Living Room Arm Chair is unique in its design; incorporating many of the aspects found in other Greene & Greene chairs from its cloud lift headrest and rails, to its carved arms. While adding some unique elements not found in other chairs, side panels, split center back slat joined by ebony bars and carved cloud lifts in each rail.
