Exceptional set composed of a pair of '' cabriolet '' armchairs in the shape of a violin and a large and magnificent sofa in the '' basket '' shape.
Each of these three seats rests on arched legs.
The wide seats combine elegance, aesthetics and comfort.
The armrests are nervously treated as a "coup de fouet".
The sinuous belts deploy a deep, powerful and vigorous molding.
The crossbars as well as the top of the feet are carved with a beautiful and generous floral ornamentation.
Pierre Nogaret also had recourse to the principle of “agrafes”: significant decoration found on this set, in particular on the cross members of the seat belts and on the lower and upper cross members of the backrests.
These '' agrafes '' sculpted with small volutes or acanthus leaves in opposition help to reinforce the movement of the sleepers by interrupting them to resume the molding in counter-curves.
The quality of the walnut, the perfect balance, the power of the sculptures, the `` coup de fouet '' armrest consoles, the elegance of the curves and counter-curves allow us to easily attribute this set of seats to the production of the famous Lyon seat carpenter, Pierre Nogaret (1718 - 1771).
We can add to this attribution, a specific know-how of the Lyon carpenter, which consists in creating a thinning of the thickness of the sleepers, as well as the presence of reinforcing bars.
