Pair of Tripod Lounge Chairs by Guillerme et Chambron, France 20th century

$ 13,300
  • Description
    This pair of mid-century lounge chairs by Guillerme et Chambron are a stunning blend of soft form and geometric linear structure. The designers are renowned for their ability to highlight practicality through harmonious forms, and these chairs prove themselves to follow these guidelines.

    The solid oak wood frames provide a sturdy yet elegant structure, showcasing the beautiful material. Their sculptural form allows for a dynamic visual movement between the different accents of this model, with the open construction of the backrest seamlessly combining with the smooth armrests. The bouclé fabric upholstery adds a premium touch to the overall look of these lounge chairs. With its light, neutral tones, the fabric complements the rich colour of the oak, creating a signature timeless look.

    One of the most distinctive features of these chairs is their three-legged structure, a unique design choice that adds an element of modernity. This structural decision not only makes a bold visual statement, creating an open area in the back that relaxes the overall design, but also ensures stability and support. Guillerme et Chambron have created pieces that are as functional as they are beautiful.

    About the Designers:
    Robert Guillerme graduated in 1934 from the École Boulle where he excelled in architecture and furniture design. After the Second World War he moved to Lille, in the north of France, where he decorated homes and designed furniture for the well regarded Rogier workshops.

    In 1948, Guillerme was joined by his long-time friend, decorator Jacques Chambron in Lille. The following year Guillerme and Chambron met master cabinetmaker Émile Dariosecq, owner of a woodworking shop and the company Votre Maison was born. Together, they defined and imposed a new furniture concept. Thanks to their distinctive creativity, originality, and quality, the Votre Maison quickly became well-known.

    The Votre Maison marked the history of French design. Guillerme drew the furniture designs while Chambron played the part of salesman, welcoming and advising clients. The power duo was complemented by Dariosecq, whose workshop took charge of the manufacturing. Together, they defined new furnishings concepts. Well-crafted chair back, polished wood and thick cushions make the reputation of their armchairs and sofas. Votre Maison continued to produce furniture right into the 20th century, with Jacques’s son Hervé Chambron, a designer and graduate of the École Boulle, having taken the over in 1983. ~H.
