Pair of Antique French Louis XV Style Painted Armchairs, France circa 1895

The lovely flowing lines of these antique French Louis XV style armchairs with modern upholstery from France circa 1895 are enhanced by the soft color of the painted finish. The top of each chair back features a bouquet of flowers which was a favored motif used during the reign of Louis XV (1723-1774) as does the front of each seat. The beautiful curved profile of these open armchairs begins with a curved back, a shaped seat and four cabriole legs notable for their elegant proportions that balance the entire chair. Even the front legs feature a beautifully balanced carved element at the front to stylistically unite the entire chair from top to middle to side as it is viewed. This ability to create an entire chair that is not only comfortable to be seated in but also to be pleasing to the eye from every direction is an especial talent exhibited by the cabinet makers of eighteenth century France. These chairs have been newly upholstered in a bright bold modern fabric, as well as the separate seat cushion. These chairs in France are known as "fauteuils" because they have an open arm with a padded top. Because the back of each chair is slanted at the proper angle they are quite relaxing to be seated in for any length of time.
