The bergère style armchair appeared at the beginning of the 18th century and has continuously evolved since that time. Originally, it was a large armchair with a cushioned backrest, a curved shape and straight legs. Its dimensions were finally reduced in the 19th century. Its names vary according to style and era. It may, for example, be referred to as a "gondola" bergère, or "à oreilles" (with ears), "à lambrequin" (mantled), "montgolfière" (balloon-shaped back) or "Pompadour" (rounded armrests). Read more
Bergère Louis XVI
Charm and authenticity are the principal characteristics of the large Louis XVI Monceau bergère armchair. It is an identical reproduction of the antique 18th century armchair.
Just as the bergère chairs of old, the rounded, padded backrest comfortably fits the shape of your back. The armchair is upholstered in a particularly robust beige fabric that will be in perfect harmony with any interior and any style, whether classic or not. The Louis XVI bergère by Maison Saulaie can therefore easily complete a room decorated in the same style, the same period, or add a comfortable and welcoming touch to a more minimalistic interior. This bergère chair is made and assembled using traditional craft techniques, in strong solid wood. The meticulous finish uses natural wax, immediately adding an impression of fitness and elegance. The bergère chair reaches out with its armrests inviting you for a moment of comfortable relaxation.
