For years we had been searching for a proper size and “comfortable” Louis XVI side chair. Finally, we found the perfect Louis XVI style chair, from a gorgeous set of circa 1800s in the style of Jacob, from Chateau de I’ Oise in France. The seat was just a little wider and a smidge deeper and the back relaxed a few more degrees, which made for the absolute perfect Louis XVI style side chair. They just sat so right, that we decided to reproduce them; not by some automated machine in Asia, but the old fashion way, by hand. Look at the radius carved corners of the seats and if you look carefully, you will see that they are slightly different and all the edges have clear crisp carving marks, which is not what you would get by a machine-made chair. All the connections are mortise and tenon. We will offer the chairs from bare wood frames, to finished product, for I know that many of you have your favorite upholster and finisher. **Seat height is 19.25"
