Product Description

Meet the “Chair Louis” by Eichholtz, a timeless masterpiece inspired by the opulent fauteuil from Louis XVI’s Salon des Jeux at Saint Cloud, as detailed by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This chair, with its antique gold finish and sentier cream upholstery, pays homage to the grandeur of the 18th-century originals. With dimensions of 71.5 cm in width, 65.5 cm in depth, and 111 cm in height, it offers both elegance and comfort. The Chair Louis captures the essence of the era with its neoclassical design and intricate carvings, inviting you to indulge in the luxury of history and artistry.

The Chair Louis is a faithful reproduction of an ornate and formal straight-backed armchair (1788), or fauteuil, crafted by Georges Jacob (French, 1739–1814), one of France’s most successful chair-makers of the 18th century. The Met’s chair is part of a larger set of furniture described in the 1789 inventory of Château de Saint Cloud on the outskirts of Paris. The set was commissioned for Louis XVI’s gaming room, known as the Salon des Jeux. With its rectilinear frame, scrolled arm supports, and carved legs, the Museum’s chair exemplifies neoclassicism.This reproduction has been crafted with a fine antiqued gold finishe and sentier cream fabric.
