Striking pair of vintage (late 1930's) French wrought iron fauteuils attributed to the renowned furniture designer René Prou. Timelessly designed with simple decorations, these chairs are as pleasing aesthetically as they are comfortable. Easily utilized indoors with their posh royal blue mohair upholstery, this fine pair of chairs offer plenty of charm and would easily mix with most anything from antebellum antiques to cutting edge contemporary. Hard to imagine but, these chairs have me mesmerized by their beauty and stunning good looks.
René Prou (1889 – 1948) A decorator as well as furniture designer, René Prou was born in Nantes and educated in Paris. He studied at the Ecole Bernard-Palissy in Paris and shortly thereafter joined the design house, Gouffe. By 1912 he had become their chief designer and was being called the first decorator of the modern taste (gout moderne).
In very nice condition. New mohair upholstery.
