OUT OF STOCK
This very attractive "curule" stool is upholstered in gorgeous blue silk embroidered with flowers and garlands. The word "curule" comes from Roman antiquity, when it was used to describe an ivory chair reserved for the use of certain high-ranking Roman officials.
Its X-shaped base rests on scrolls and the two fronts are embellished with beautiful carving.
It can be used in the living room as an accent chair or in a bedroom as a bed end or in front of a vanity table.
Late 19th century
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.
