Louis XVI Gustavian Chair
Gustavian chair, circa 1780.
Dimensions : 91 h x 49 w x 40 d cm.
Original : private collection, chateau in the Namur area (Belgium).
This chair was produced in Sweden around 1780. The special charm of this very simple, but not simplistic, model counterbalances the sturdiness of the whole, accentuated by the H-shaped stretcher.
