This beautiful and elegant chair, c.1910, has been skilfully restored by our master craftspeople.
Reupholstered in a magnificent woven jacquard from the house of Etro, it is supremely comfortable and would be perfect as a standalone piece in a library or sitting room.
Influenced by Art Nouveau, the Arts & Crafts movement and Georgian designs, a more delicate and refined style was evident; with bamboo and wicker often being the materials of choice for many designers.
The look was informal and fresh, with florals and soft pastel shades dominating the palette in informal rooms. For sitting rooms and libraries, the colours were predominantly dark green and deep rose, complemented by cream walls.
The Edwardian period extended from 1901 to 1910 and was an era of new beginnings. A lighter and more cheerful style of interior design, and the crowning of a new King, swept away the dark and heavy designs of the Victorian period.
Etro was established in 1968 by Gimmo Etro. Initially founding the company to supply textiles to the rapidly-increasing Italian fashion industry, Gimmo was subsequently inspired to create his own fashion line. Etro has become renowned for its innovative design techniques and exquisite patterns; particularly for resurrecting the Paisley Pattern that originated in Scotland.
Officially launched in 1985, Etro homewares offered its customers not only the opportunity to wear its exquisite creations but also to surround themselves with its luxurious designs in their living space.
A Ready-to-Wear collection for men and women was established in 1991 by his son and daughter, Kean and Veronia; their first fashion show was launched in 1994.
