A pair of Regency era bergère library or salon chairs, in the style of Gillows of Lancaster and London.
English, circa 1825.
Why we like them
Arguably the most comfortable model of chair ever created. The padded, wrap-around backrests provide useful support for the back, but also lend more presence to these chairs.
The Gillows firm produced this comfortable and popular model of ‘curricle’ bergère in various timbers and with various form of decoration.
