Let me tell you where the astonishing name of this type of armchair comes from. The "Bergère" is a type of armchair, large, comfortable and spacious, filled with a cushion. It is wider and deeper than ordinary armchairs, its seat is lower and the space between the armrests and the seat is always upholstered.
It seems that the name "Bergère" refers to the tapestries with bucolic scenes of shepherds that were very popular at the beginning of the 18th century and with which the seats were covered.
The name "Bergère à oreilles" is used when the backrest is fitted with elements added to the top of the sides to support the head or to preserve the user's privacy.
Late 19th century
Style: Louis XV
Louis XV, known as the "Beloved" reigned over the kingdom of France from 1715 to 1774, he was the only king of France to be born and die at the Palace of Versailles.
The Louis XV style is characterized by its elegance and lightness. It is recognizable by the grace of the curved legs of the furniture with "pied de biche"(deer foot).
The wood is natural, gilded or painted. The "rococo" style ornamentation is inspired by nature and exoticism.
