Set of Eight 19th Century Louis XVI Medaillon Dining Chairs


Fine set of 8 early 19th century Louis XVI Medaillon dining chairs. Very well constructed hand carved beechwood frames with their original patinated paint finish, velvet upholstery. These chairs are very strong and the wide seat very comfortable. The rich terra-cotta and taupe colored fabrics are in good condition and conveys a feel of old world luxury. Originally, the chair was a privilege reserved for the nobles. The common people used the chests or benches to sit down. It is only from the Renaissance period that the chair entered the houses. The medallion chair appeared under the reign of Louis XVI (1774-1792). The Louis XVI style is inspired by Antiquity and advocates a return to classicism. The medallion chair, with an oval-shaped back, thus appears under this influence. Today, this style chair has not disappeared from our interiors. On the contrary the chair inspires several creators and our interiors with originality. While choosing a "classic" chair for a romantic interior, the medallion is a wonderful choice. Velvet is a glamorous upholstery fabric. Boasting a huge 100,000 rub count this fabric range is suitable for severe domestic usage. Velvet is available in wide range of painterly hues and it’s old-world appeal makes it an excellent choice for the upholstery. Woven in Europe.
