Welcome timeless elegance into your home with this delightful, part-bergere armchair.
The piece has been re-built, to last, for future generations. It would be wonderful in a bedroom, dressing room or entrance hall.
The chair has been reupholstered in a sumptuous, rich, poudre-pink velvet by La Maison Pierre Frey, Paris and hand-finished with silken trim from Houlès, Paris.
The house of Pierre Frey, which remains family-owned, was founded in 1935 and is still headquartered at the same building, near the Palais Royale.
Throughout the years, Pierre Frey has expanded to include Boussac, Le Manach, Fadini Borghi and Braquenie. In addition to exquisite fabrics, their range spans carpets, furniture and wallpaper.
Houlès designs and creates the finest of trimmings and fabrics. Still family-owned, it was founded in Paris by father and son Félix and André Houlès in 1928. The company, which began with one store at 18 rue Saint-Nicolas, is now established in over 160 countries.
Presidential residences and castles, such as le Château de Versailles, often select Houlès’ passements for their restoration projects.
Louis XVI style or Louis Seize, as it is often referred to, is renowned for its serenity and refinement. The love of the outdoors and nature, during this period, was brought together in furniture, architecture and interior decoration.
