  • Description
    Art Deco, the glamorous and influential design movement that emerged in France during the early 20th century, left an indelible mark on the world of furniture design. Characterized by its bold geometric shapes, rich materials, and luxurious aesthetics, Art Deco transformed the way we perceive interior spaces. It was a testament to the fusion of form and function, and this ethos is beautifully exemplified in this pair of exquisite Art Deco armchairs.

    This timeless pair of European Art Deco club chairs boasts a beautiful, almost sculptural frame with generous curves that evokes the high-end craftsmanship of the movement that’s steeped in old-school luxury and glamour. These armchairs are a true embodiment of the Art Deco style. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, their geometrically inspired frames are constructed from rich, stained birchwood that exudes opulence through its rich and versatile patterns and colours. The upholstery is equally striking, featuring sumptuous velour fabric in an earthly and elegant brown tone. The streamlined, round armrests and similarly rounded backs showcase the movement's commitment to modernity. The "fauteuil de style", also known as the armchair. In France, the history of furniture closely follows the history of kings, Furniture like armchairs could only be found in the rich homes of the high nobility, closely linked to the reigning monarch whose taste dictated fashion. This is why we talk about Louis XIII, Louis XIV, Régence, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Directory, Empire armchairs… To live up to the seating style’s rich history rooted in style and comfort, this pair has thick seat cushions, sides, and backs fully upholstered. Instead of traditional tapered legs, these chairs stand on rectangular wooden feet with an especially rich grain, that give them extra personality while also highlighting the curve of the arms.

    Like Club chairs, armhairs - perhaps the most quintessential pieces of furniture - were embraced during the Art Deco era for their comfort and timeless appeal. They were favoured in upscale clubs and lounges across Europe, providing an inviting haven for relaxation and socializing. These chairs symbolize an era of sophistication and luxury, and their enduring popularity is a testament to the enduring allure of Art Deco design.
