A "broken duchess" is a chaise longue that became fashionable in France during the reign of King Louis XV and was used as a daybed, especially by women. It is divided into two or three distinct and separable parts. The seat itself is an armchair of the "bergère" type, extended either by a large pouf, or by a pouf and a smaller armchair.
This one dates from around 1900 and has been reupholstered in a beautiful emerald green velvet from the Designers Guild and a chinoiserie pattern fabric.
