As an eye-catching decorative antique armchair, this channel-tufted armchair is both glamorous and comfortable. Crafted and beautifully sculpted from solid beech wood, this chair has recently been painstakingly restored, refurbished and reupholstered with a beautiful vibrant luscious green 100% cotton fabric called, “Lacefield Villa Cayman Concord”. The contrasting black background evokes a dreamy aura of nightfall in the jungle with just enough light to leave the leaves with a lustrous, glowing fluorescence. A generous and comfy chair, the wood has been restored with a professional French hand polish. Bringing it back to its former glory in beautiful tropical style and as an accent chair in a conservatory, a bedroom, a study, a hallway or a sitting room, this piece will not fail to impose its presence.
Walnut or oak was traditionally used for the body of pieces; walnut and rosewood for surface veneers. The fact that this specific piece is most likely beech wood, leads me to deduce that it does not date back to the 18th century but rather it is a 20th century (1940s, 1950s) replica. The proud former owner had informed me that it had been in their family for 3 generations, has travelled from Switzerland to Canada and then back again to mainland Europe, to the Alsace, France.
The era of early 18th-century France, when Philippe, the duke of Orléans, ruled the country in his grand-nephew Louis XV’s stead, who was only five years old when he inherited the throne, is referred to as French Regency. Officially the Régence period span from 1715-1723, though the Régence style is more often refers to the slightly broader time range from the 1710s to around 1730. This is quite typical with antique furniture periods.
