The Solicitor's Clerk

"What a change from those backyards, overrun with chickens and children, to the drawingroom of the solicitor's clerk who, coatless, tieless and in slippers, looked relaxed and comfortable in his morris chair, while the heavy red curtains, reflecting on the polished floor, made the scene as cosy and rich as something in an advertisement! What a change from the Tulsi house!" (10)

Naipaul, V.S. A House for Mr. Biswas. Middlesex, England: Penguin Books Ltd, 1976 [1961].

Morris chair, here uncapitalized; a thing, no longer a brand. Definitely not a chair to wear a coat in, that's for sure. Or a tie. Or shoes.
