Vintage Plaid Tilt Back Chair


So here is the before.  Yes, there is a back on the floor next to the chair (already recovered).  Don't you just want to cringe when you see green velvet?  Hehe.


Now usually I would repaint the woodwork white, but this little chair looked perfect as is.  Just a covering of tan and white plaid upholstery fabric that I picked up for $1 on the weekend and I'm in love ....

 And what makes this chair unique is that the back of the chair has a screw on either side and when you lean back, it tilts backwards slightly.  I've seen so many around, but I just can't remember the correct name to call it. 

Can anyone help me out here with the correct name please?


Again, before and after ...
