Charming, elegant, refined, this Venetian armchair made « en cabriole » combines the grace of the eighteenth century with the light exuberance of the Republic of Venice.
These generous forms have intricated and skilled carving : flowers, leaves and scrolls are tastefully portrayed with curves and counter curves that reflect a dynamic architecture.
One can also see excellent detailing not only climbing the legs but finishing at the feet. Above all, a distinctive grace is apparent in this charming model.
