Description

These superb of Art Nouveau (1880-1910) Rosewood salon chairs reflect Art Nouveau at it's very best. The overstuffed seats and back panels are upholstered in William Morris design fabric. The chairs are part! These maybe the only four in the world! William Morris (1834- 1896) instigated The arts and Craft movement and along with others (The brotherhood) changed design and manufacturing forever.
Art Nouveau was, as it's name implies.... A new style... Not copied or revived, but a new style that reflected the climate of the times.
Rosewood was a hardwood that was imported from India, it is somewhat expensive. It was chiefly used as a veneer or for inlay work. During the 19th century wealthy and important clients ordered furniture, such as these chairs to be made from Rosewood, thus demonstrating their extreme wealth and position in society . These chairs represent High design. Superb craftsmanship, wealth and power!
This chair is a set of 4.
