Set Of Oaken “Grand Repos” Lounge Chairs by Guillerme et Chambron, France 1950s

$ 15,675
  • Description
    These Guillerme et Chambron ‘Grand Repos’ lounge chairs display a beautiful contrast between the light oak frame and the elegant light fabric of the cushions. With a solid wooden frame, the support for the back is made with six wooden spindles extending upwards yet slightly curved, resulting in a rounded backrest. The backrest is slightly tilted for comfort, aided by the generous seat and back cushions.

    The pillow for the backrest has been embellished with tufted buttons on the front and back, as well as with loops encompassing the spindles that ensure the cushion stays in position. The bottom consists of a cushion framed by the curved wooden armrests which extend to the legs.

    The standout feature of this model are the creative overarching spindles that create an almost throne-like, grandiose effect. The woodworking truly shows the overall quality of these chairs, the frame is refined and the attention paid to the smallest detail shows the design and manufacturing skills of Robert Guillerme and Jacques Chambron.

    In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. The chair’s cushions have been reupholstered in a premium fabric. Each of our items can be re-upholstered by our in-house atelier in a fabric of choice. Please reach out for more information.

    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.
