Chair iconised by Louis XV, small side chair
Arguably, there has never been a chair so iconic and so tied to it's time, history and the emperors who used it. It's no wonder that no grand palace is complete without it. From Buckingham, Versailles and Schönbrunn to 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 perfect for the home office or study. Their graceful and restrained curves with stunning carvings are prized by curators all around the world.
Pictured also is Queen Elizabeth II's formal sitting room at Buckingham Palace.
