Pair of 18th Century French Directoire Benches

  • H: 87 cm (34 1/4")
  • W: 185 cm (72 13/16")
  • D: 50 cm (19 11/16")

Pair of late 18th Century French directoire benches in carved walnut, in fantastic condition with beautiful carved arch detail to the back and curved, slender arms.

The benches feature stunning attention to detail throughout, particularly in the pattern across the back of each seat and in the hand carved legs. 

The original rush seating is in better condition on one bench as it has been re-weaved at a later date. 

The light elegance of these benches is a testament to how seating was one of few areas of furniture production in this tumultuous period of French history which saw some progression. Production was greatly impacted by revolution.

This pair of benches will bring elegance to a living room or hallway. Later green silk cushions can be added or the rush seats can be left exposed.
