Chair #30

—Offered through Art & Artifact

The first thing you notice about this repro European antique chair is its swirly-lishiously carved round back, with a surreptitiously placed fleur-des-lis in the center. In contrast to all those swirls of delight are the rigid, turned, front legs with carved block fleurettes. Both features are capriciously lavished with gold leaf.
