Pair Gilded Vintage Louis XVI Carved Wood Fauteuil Armchairs

$960.00 the shining pair

This pair of armchairs is a lot of grandeur for $960 the pair, and will now be seen through the lens of Post-Modern Irony. They would be very sharp in a Neo-Modern space: all straight lines and white walls!

This large pair of gilded Louis XVI style chairs is from the last century, and has some age. Importantly, all the carving is actual wood, not the applied composition it usually is for 20th century examples.

The style started in the 1760s in France and spread throughout the world, as the gold standard of furnishing. In the 20th century such furniture was to be found in the homes of royalty and the rich throughout Europe, India, the Middle East, South East Asia, Russia, South America and so forth. I cannot tell the origin of our pair of chairs. Interviews with Saudi Princes and Tzar Putin will still often feature such chairs.
