Pair of armchairs
I love the contrast between the simple elegance of the blackened wood of this pair of armchairs and the luxurious color of the silk that covers them. These two armchairs are Napoleon III style and period. Dark woods were very trendy at the time as well as luxurious fabrics. I wanted to restore them in this style and I think the result is quite a success.
Style: Napoleon III
Nephew of Napoleon I, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected President of the Second Republic in 1848 before becoming Emperor Napoleon III in 1852 following a coup d'etat.
Napoleon III style is one of the most interesting even if nothing is really novel with elements borrowed from preceding styles. Based on the taste of the period, Japanese, Chinese and Oriental art brings a richness, abundance and eclecticism specific to this period.
