This lovely Antique Chaise Lounge , is extremely comfortable and yet perfectly up to date. One can note the altogether flexible and nervous forms on which runs a subtle but not very deep carving made of acanthus leaves and foliated scrolls, accentuated by rosettes, flowers and vases. The sabre legs ending in caprine hoof remind of the “à la Turque “ style, close to the French revolution and curiously inspired by Etruscan forms, of which Madame Elisabeth was so found for her castle of Montreuil.
