Gefasster Louis XVI Armlehnsessel


A paintwood armchair, with upholstered back, seat and arm-pads covered in ‘Rubelli’ Fabric from Venice, Italy. A near-square back with a shallow-arched, hollow-cornered top rail and pointed finials, a serpentine seat on fluted, tapered legs. Front legs surmounted by stylised leaf paterae. The back raised above the seat on struts, extending from the back legs. Padded arm-rests descend to a spiral scroll to overlap the arm-supports, which sweep down again to meet the front legs. The contrast between the magnificent ‘Rubelli’ fabric and the beautifully patinated original surface paint layer surmounts to a sophisticated modern look.
