During the first half of the seventeenth century chairs evolve towards a new model today known as Louis XIII foreshadowing the armchair. Chairs adopt a widen and lower silhouette. Horizontal lines prevail. Cushions disappear supplanted by horse hair upholstery.
This chair stands on four feet linked by a spacer and a frontal cross-bar. Legs, spacers, cross-bar and arm-rests all embrace a twisted shape. The back posts are baluster shaped.
This charming chair still presents its original red silk velvet.
The gilt wood and red upholstery brings an air of elegance to this exceptional armchair.
