Pair of 1940s French Louis XV Style Tufted Leather Barrel Back Bergeres Chairs


This pair of French Louis XV style bergeres features lovely colored leather upholstery, tufted in the back with nailhead trim. The wraparound backs, as well as the seat cushions, offer great comfort to the sitter. The curviness, typical of the Louis XV style, is present but not overdone. The barrel backs are adorned with discreet scrolls, while the arms, which are partially upholstered, take on a sinuous shape, echoed in the skirt and cabriole legs. These stylish 1940s French bergeres chairs would be a great asset in any library, office or living room. The richness of the leather's color, combined with the lovely choice of the Louis XV style brings great attention to their presence.
