Pair of Louis XVI Revival Armchairs

  • H: 88 cm (34 5/8")
  • W: 58 cm (22 13/16")
  • D: 61 cm (25")

Pair of 19th Century French fauteuils in the Louis XVI style.

This stunning pair have oval backs with moulded frames in original paint. With padded armrests on fluted scroll arm supports. The channelled seat rails are supported on circular tapering fluted legs headed by rosette centred panels.

They have been upholstered in a beautiful silk fabric.

Fauteils emerged in France in the early 18th Century, as a reaction against years of uncomfortable seating under Louis XIV. The King had insisted on strict court etiquette, where only the highest echelons were allowed to sit down. 

In the more liberal social atmosphere that followed, the fauteil was born as a means of comfortable seating.

At this point, French and British chair design was very much in tandem and both started to lean towards upholstered luxury.
