Good Questions: Should I Re-upholster this Chair?

Hello! I found this chair at an auction and thought I would like to reupholster it. It is a mustard yellow color with the Naugahyde fabric having a sort of grain effect. The grain effect has been worn off on the top back and arms of the chair. On closer inspection, I had second thoughts about recovering it, due to the amount of curves in the body of the chair. Then it occurred to me that I don't even know what kind of chair this is and I might be doing myself a great disservice in recovering it. Do you know what kind of chair this might be? Does it have a particular style? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely,
Kathryn

Anything covered in Naugahyde is probably safe to recover, ASAP! Would anyone disagree?

We like this chair's unique shape — keep us informed on your progress!
