Duchesse brisée / couch with ottoman of Louis XV sensibility
Covet the rare, the extraordinary and the brilliant.
Like an unsure ballet dancer on her first night, the duchesse appears to be standing on it's pointes as if uncertain of which direction to hop.
The Duchesse or Duchesse-brisée became popular in the 1750s in the new drive for comfort inspired by the French court at Versailles. The Duchesse is essentially a day bed with one end taller than the other - an armchair and a low chauffeuse joined together by a stool or a tabouret.
French bergere, model duchesse brisee with surreal sensibilities. Absolutely beautiful in our walnut paint that simply could not be duplicated. Structurally solid and only lacking your upholstery choice.
