The Tobey Furniture Company of Chicago was founded in 1856 by Charles Tobey. It was a leader of handmade furniture in the latter half of the 19th century, and employed the talents of Joseph Twyman, a former designer for William Morris. Through Twyman’s efforts, the Tobey Company created the “William Morris Room” line of Arts and Crafts furniture and goods that included textile and wallpapers by William Morris. The Tobey Furniture company designed furniture for Chicago’s Grand Pacific Hotel, and the Tremont House. Gustav Stickley also designed furniture for the Tobey Company as well. The Patented Toby Chair (1901)was a streamlined version of the Morris chair.
