Armchairs & Desk Chairs

With over 40 years experience in sourcing, importing fine quality antique furniture into Brisbane, Wallrocks is delighted to offer one of the highest quality collections of English and French antique armchairs available in Australia.  With a selection of gilded, decorated or polished – fauteuil or bergere – our antique armchair collection is extensive and can be restored to suit all tastes.

Our antique armchairs are sourced in original condition, which allows our clients to dictate the restoration and design process of their antique chair purchase. Certainly the most exciting part of buying an antique, clients can select frame colour or polish, fabric, upholstery type and edge details to suit their own specific interior design.

Loved for its obvious practicality, the antique armchair offers the allure of temporary escape and retreat. First conceived during Roman times, the armchair was not readily used by the average man until the Renaissance Period – chairs prior to this era had been largely arm-less. First developed as a luxury item for the wealthy aristocracy and royalty in which to recline until they became a must-have item during the Renaissance period for many homes. So successful were they in design that they remain an integral element of every modern home.

A vast array of styles and designs have been devoted over the centuries, with love seats, wingback, burger, fauteuil, conversation chairs and the list goes on.

Undoubtedly, one of the finest examples in the Wallrocks collection, Item 2516, a pair of early 19th century French Louis XVI decorated and parcel gilt armchairs, they are very much reminiscent Marie Antoinette’s style and taste with their fabulously carved and moulded frames, dark and light blue detailing and finished with the finest touches of gilt. Their little matching x-frame window seat or stool is simply divine. Click here to view.
