Probably the most iconic items of furniture from the 18th and early 19th centuries in France were Louis XV and Louis XVI armchairs. At http://www.taillardat.fr/collection-fauteuils-en.php you can view a fine selection of chairs inspired by these designs. Eye-catching, flamboyant, discreetly elegant or effortlessly sophisticated – whatever your preference in terms of style, you will definitely find it here!
From armchairs to chairs: the latter were not left untouched by the aesthetic trends of the period. Rich colours and elaborately carved structures were the order of the day, as can be seen in this Louis XV style chair (below). This model is called the Royaumont Dorée.
