About

These impressive chairs have many wonderful qualities; the grey paint surface is original, they have detailed carvings with rosettes at the side of the aprons, and acanthus leaf carvings grace the front legs, but, most importantly, is how comfortable they are. The backs are high and give support at the perfect angle, and the seats are wide and generous. The chairs have been upholstered in a white linen fabric.
