Napoleon III Style Giltwood Rope-Twist Armchair and Ottoman

$7,500per set


Giltwood rope-twist armchair and ottoman made in Italy in the manner of A.M.E Fournier, Napoleon III Style. Both feature solid carved giltwood frames, upholstered in leopard print. This seat is perched atop hearty knots of rope and evokes the true definition of royalty. Chair size: 30 in. H x 26.5 in. W x 27.5 in. D. Ottoman size: 18 in. H x 27 in. W x 26 in. D. The illusion of twisted and knotted rope is often associated with the work of the Parisian upholsterer A. M. E. Fournier, who worked at the Boulevard Beaumarchais, from 1850 on wards. It is indicative of the mid-19th century’s flair for novelty, while the stool’s curvilinear outline is characteristic of the Rococo Revival; the voluminous tufted upholstery was complementary to the Popular Style. Fournier was famed for his exceptional upholstered pieces, but his most famous creation was this wonderfully naturalistic rope twist stool, which was as highly sought after in period as it is today.
