Painted French Louis XVI Style SIde Chairs, Set of Eight or More Hand-Carved

$19,200per set


We have been searching for a correct size and “comfortable by American standards” Louis XVI side chair. Copied from an original circa 1800s French Louis XVI side chair in the style of Jacob from Chateau de I’ Oise in France. The seat was slightly wider and a smidge deeper and the back relaxed a few more degrees which made for the perfect French Louis XVI side chair. They just sat so nice that we decided to reproduce them; the old fashion way, by hand and in France. Notice the radius carved corners and if you look carefully, you will see that they are slightly different and all the edges have sharp crisp carving marks, which is only accomplished when you hand-carve. All connections are Mortise and Tenon. We offer the chairs from bare wood frames at $800, to a finished product as shown. The upholstery on our set of eight black leather chairs, have been padded with horsehair for the seat bottom cushion and shredded coco for the seat backs, just like the old fashion way.
