15 of 60 French Louis XIII Style Antique chairs. Even sets available.
Circa 1930s, these antique chairs exemplify why we at Beauchamp Antiques often talk about the rich history behind our antique furniture. Originally from a hotel in France, these pieces survived the occupation of France during WWII. We can only imagine the stories they could tell if they could talk. Louis XIII’s style was more subdued than his successors. The lines are less ornate, following a more geometric pattern. The mutton leg, seen on these chairs, is typical of this style, and refers its similarity to a lamb’s leg in how it is bent. Made out of fruitwood with mortise and tenon construction, these generous and sturdy chairs include stretchers between the legs to add to their strength. Beautiful brass head to head nail trim the seats and backs. The upholstery is vintage, and can be replaced if you desire.
