Pair of 1850s Biedermeier Austrian Burled Wood Bergères with New Upholstery


A pair of mid-19th century Biedermeier Austrian burled wood bergère chairs with new linen upholstery and brass nailhead trim. Each of this pair of Austrian armchairs features the typical traits of the Biedermeier period. The burled blond wood and elegant lines that mix tradition and modernity, make these Biedermeier chairs an excellent decorative choice for any décor. The square backs flow seamlessly into the tall arms. The simple linen upholstery allows the beauty of the wood to shine perfectly. The legs on which each bergère is raised, mix a taste of two different influences: the cabriole legs in the front, with their carved acanthus leaves on the knees, are a nod to the Louis XV period, while the saber legs in the back reminisce of the Empire era. Perfect to compliment any home, whether decorated in a traditional or more modern manner, this pair of Austrian Biedermeier chairs, circa 1850 will be the perfect stylish choice.
