The addition of fabric to a piece has the potential to transform an antique and bring it from one century into another and ensure it’s longevity and relevance into the future.
Our antique seating ranges from antique armchairs, settees, stools, duchesse brissees and day beds in a variety of styles including Louis XV, Louis XVI, French Empire, Regency, Victorian and more.
One of the earliest forms of antique seating was the stool, as evidenced during the excavation of the tomb of King Tutankhamun. Interestingly, despite the huge variety of seating that has evolved throughout the ages, they were all derived from the stool, bench and chair. It was not until the 17th century that the emphasise shifted from form to function and antique seating took a new direction toward comfort.
