Description

A highly collectable J.S. Henry, Arts and Crafts, oak armchair with a high back and sweeping curved arms.

The chair has been fully restored by our skilled craftspeople and reupholstered in Colefax & Fowler’s beautiful, marled Conway linen. The blending of differently coloured fibres creates an incredibly opulent appearance.

J.S. Henry of London was one of the top cabinet makers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The company created a beautiful range of Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau pieces.

Whilst few designers were named by J.S. Henry, designs by George Walton and C.F.A Voysey were public; G.M. Ellwood was their most prolific designer.

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.
