BIG Directoire Style Bergere Armchair


The upholstery is English, but I think the chair is probably French, being Directoire style, and probably made about 1900. The original painted surface has worn nicely on the armrests. It has great patina. The upholstery, in smart stripes with piping, is in good condition. The cushion is mainly goose down and feathers, while the frame is upholstered mainly in horse and hog hair. The wonderfully comfortable bergere is BIG: 113 cm tall, 64cm wide and 75 cm deep.Perfect for a basketball player!


The Directoire style is the understated but elegant style popular during the French Revolution.
