Pair of René Prou Style French Gilt Metal Chairs with Italian Tiger Velvet Seats

$9,800per set


Sexy pair of René Prou style French chairs finished with newly reupholstered tiger velvet seats and feature original gold leaf over a red base on hand wrought metal. Oh là là! 1940s glamour with an exquisite poetic form, the lines are reminiscent of beautiful calligraphy. Folded gilt arms seem to float. Curved legs soften the metal form - very French indeed. Tiger print velvet seats reinforce the organic curves, add warmth and pair beautifully with the gold leaf gilt. C'est si bon! Pictured with a brass lotus flower lamp by Feldman Lighting and brass side table attributed to Maison Baguès. Want to see more beautiful things?
