Beautiful living room consisting of two armchairs with flat backs and a sofa in lacquered walnut wood "underside of olive leaf".
Model with "basket handle" backs featuring ribbons tied at the tops and on the front crosspieces.
The seat connected by flower dices to the four canted legs, roughened with a single wide groove.
Beautiful state of preservation, small gaps and small wear to the original lacquer.
Nîmes work attributable to Pierre Pillot around 1780.
Sofa: Width: 133 cm; Height: 105cm; Depth: 51cm
Armchairs: Width: 66 cm; Height: 98cm; Depth: 55cm
Our opinion :
With its broadly fluted square feet and its "antique" decorative repertoire, the living room we present is attributable to the carpenter Pierre Pillot.
Coming from the seraglio of Parisian carpenters, he apprenticed with Mathieu Bauve before settling around 1770 in Nîmes near the market square, where he worked until 1822.
Obtaining a great reputation very quickly, he produced most of the large joinery sets for the châteaux of Provence.
If the beds, sofas, armchairs, chairs and other wall consoles come from his workshop, he also offers furniture, such as wardrobes and chests of drawers, freeing himself from the Parisian law on corporations which reserves this type of manufacture to cabinetmakers.
Inspired by the Roman monuments of the Gardoise city, he offers us here a perfectly balanced design, with fluid lines, in the purest neoclassical style.
