Chair #118

—Designer unknown

France, circa 1940. The wood on this chair is adorned with rope, tassel and plume motifs. It is upholstered in red and has a distinct military flair. French military makes me think of Napoleon Bonaparte, military and political leader of France and Emperor of the French as Napoleon I, whose height inspired the name of an inferiority complex, and whose actions in the early 19th century shaped European politics.
