SKU: 18474

This exquisite Napoleon III chauffeuse chair from the nineteenth century features stunning openwork scrolling acanthus leaves on the back, finished in elegant black lacquer. The seat is upholstered with a handmade tapestry, a meticulous and beautiful addition that highlights the craftsmanship of this period piece.
Chauffeuse chairs, characterized by their low seats and armless design, were primarily used near fireplaces to provide a comfortable, movable seat for warming up. Their low height made them versatile for various household uses, including in parlors for social interactions, in boudoirs and bedrooms for dressing, and even as seating for children.
