Chair iconised by Louis XV, armchair
Arguably, there has never been a chair so iconic and so tied to it's time, history and the emperors that used it. It's no wonder that no grand palace is complete without it. From Buckingham, Versailles, Schönbrunn or The Hermitage, this chair has been ubiquitously synonymous with sophistication, opulence and elegance.
Gentle curves, but never a straight line, these chairs are a skill test to make for the artisans.
This design has been interpreted in dining chairs, formal side chairs, lofty chairs to go with sofas and bergère and perfect for home office study. Their graceful and restrained curves with stunning carvings are prized by curators all around the world. Shall we share a secret, shhh.... they make perfect piano chairs for you and the little ones.
