Founded in Anjou 30 years ago, Maison Saulaie offers a wide-ranging furniture catalogue; new but with all the look of old, hand-made in pure Saulaie tradition: tropical hevea hardwood and 100% genuine leather. Forget industrial production methods and move up to something truly authentic! Quality and elegance are our watchwords and we do everything in our power to ensure that our period armchairs are the very best available: luxury finish, supple seats and strong materials. The Saulaie boutique offers period cane armchairs such as Louis XVI, Sancerre and Louis XV. Using dowels and mortise and tenon joints, these top of the range armchairs are assembled by traditional methods. The wax, used to give a shine to the hevea wood, is natural. Finally, the cane-work of the seats and backs is hand-woven for an impeccable finish. The cane used is natural plant fibre.
Louis XV armchair
Maison Saulaie also offers Directoire or Louis-Philippe armchairs. With their straight or elegantly curved legs, the seats, back and arms of these armchairs are upholstered in quality beige fabric. They also present attractively carved "fleurettes" in the wood. Whether the backs are rectangular, square, oval or round, they, combined with their comfortable seats, they will offer true character to your interior. The choice of a microfibre fabric ensures that your armchair will withstand the wear of time. Solid and comfortable, this is an armchair that will suffer less from the repeated rubbing of daily wear, or from stitching that gives way. The upright back of the chair will ensure better support for your back, easing everyday fatigue. Sitting on chairs such as these means really relaxing; perfect for an evening by the fireside with a book, or an enjoyable few hours with friends and family.
