Pair of armchairs
The "caquetoire" is a Renaissance-style armchair used by noblewomen for "cackling" (to chat with each other). From 1820 artists and the public somewhat abandoned references to Greco-Roman antiquity in favour of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Grand Siècle (17th century) and the Orient. This explains why furniture in these styles was produced at the time.
During the 15th century and all over Europe, the Renaissance period was characterized by a renewed interest for Ancient Greece and Roma. Let it be in arts, architecture, philosophy or sciences, this moment marks the transition from Middle Ages to modernity.
Guided by ideals of proportions, pieces of furniture are conceived as architectural masterpieces. Ornaments are not overlooked with figurines decorating cabinets and decorative carvings on chairs and table legs.
In terms of wood, artisans turned their attention to oak, walnut and ebony.
