Beautiful, detailed Louis XVI chairs with gold gilt and ravishing couture velvet in spicy saffron.

This style is more rectilinear and less fussy than the Rococo style and became popular during the golden age of cabinetmaking.  France was home to extraordinarily talented craftsmen who were highly regarded throughout Europe and beyond.
