This Louis XV bergere Created by talented woodsman Jean-Baptiste Cresson, this magnificent wide and comfortable winged chair invites one to relax. Known as a panelled or winged chair, it resembles a fireside bergère with its low seat, ample dimensions and functionality, but is rarer with its elegant and bold ornamentation which gives it its noble bearing.
A succession of generous serpentine curves creates a rhythm in the piece’s welcoming lines marked by sculpted plant motifs which date this rare and elegant chair as from the mid-18th century.
