French Louis XVI Style Dining Chairs
Shown in our listing here, is a set of six French Louis XVI handmade dining chair, but we also have sets available in any quantity through 1stdibs. We had been looking for a proper size and most importantly, “comfortable” Louis XVI side chair forever. Finally, we came upon a beautiful suite of Louis XVI dining chairs from the late 1800’s, in the style of Jacob sitting in the Chateau de I’ Oise. The seat was wider and a smidge deeper and the back relaxed a few degrees which made for the absolute perfect French Louis XVI dining chair. The chairs just sat so right, that we immediately decided to manufacture them and not by some automated machine in Asia, but in France, the old fashion way, by hand-carving. Notice the radius carved corners of the seats and if you look carefully, you will see that they are each slightly different and all the edges have clear sharp carving marks, which is not achievable using a computer driven machine. All the connections are either mortise and tenon or pegged. We will offer the chairs in raw knock-down wood frames, to finished product. Lastly, should you have difficulty in finding the perfect color leather, no problem, just send in a color sample and we do not care if it is a tube of lipstick, we will match it, just like Porsche has done for their clients for decades. Seat height is 19.25" The armchair version will be available this fall, on 1stdibs as well.
