Empire Croisillon Chair
Empire chair, circa 1800.
Dimensions : 87 h x 45 w x 39 d cm.
The result of a formalism which was still classical and Roman, the back, with its openwork splat of latticework linked by ornemental buttons is reminiscent of the Directoire, while the more upholstered construction brings us to the solid Empire style. This balanced model is simple but well-proportioned.
