The design of Louis XV Bar Chair is based on seating from the reign of Louis XV (1730-1760) which is undoubtedly the greatest of all periods of French furniture. Influenced by the royal mistress, Madame de Pompadour, this was a period of extraordinary creativity. Chairs had curved legs, floral decorations, and comfortably padded seats and backs. Initially Madame de Pompadour, like other fashionable people of the time, embraced the Rococo style. This style was characterized by lightness, elegance, and an exuberant use of curving natural forms. Later on while she was at court there was a stylistic transition away from the Rococo and towards a more sober neoclassicism. Evidence of this can be clearly seen in some 1760s furniture whose curves are less exuberant and shapes more symmetrical.
Entirely hand-carved in rosewood, this exquisite Bar Chair is offered in a variety of finishes and accents. The seat has a memory swivel which automatically brings the seat back to its face-forward position after use. The seat cushion has 8-way hand-tied springs which will not sag even after decades of use. The solid brass footrest adds a special accent to this exquisite piece of furniture. Standard upholstery material is black or brown soft leather. Upholstery in COM or COL is offered for a slight upcharge. Custom sizing is available.
