French Louis XVI Style Side Chair Handmade in France and Available in the Flat



Our Old Plank exclusive; handmade in France, an authentic Louis XVI style side chair (also available in arm version) is now available in the flat, for ease of shipping. For years we had been searching for a proper size and “comfortable” Louis XVI style side chair. We found an exquisite set of original circa 1800s, from the Chateau de I’ Oise in France. The seat was just a little wider and a smidge deeper and the back relaxed a few more degrees, all of which made for the absolute perfect Louis XVI style side chair. They just sat so right, that we decided to reproduce them; not by some automated machine overseas, but the old fashion way, by hand. Look at the radius carved corners of the seats and if you look carefully, you will see that they are slightly different and all the edges have clear crisp carving marks. All the connections are mortise and tenon for added strength. We are offering the frames in the flat, as shown, or as a finished product, with a correct horsehair padded seat cushion and a shredded coco padded back. *Seat height is 19.25” before being compressed.

Infinite stains, paint and fabric choices. Basically, anything you can think of, we can probably execute.
