UNCOVER THE STATELY ATTRACTION OF FRENCH BERGERE CHAIRS

Calling all Francophiles! If you can’t shake the illustrious nature of all things French furniture, we have one word for you: SAME. But first, what is a Bergere chair (​​pronounced like bair-jair)? Put simply, it is a chair designed in the Louis XV style—think upholstered back and arms with a loose seat cushion and exposed frames. While some antique French Bergere chairs play around with this definition—tweaking things here and there—one thing that all of them have in common is oodles of style. First emerging in the 1600s near the end of Louis XIV’s reign, these dignified chairs have evolved to feature gilded or painted wood frames upholstered with dazzling fabrics like satin or silk. Available in both subtle and eye-popping hues—these chairs are a class act. And the best thing about them? They’re extremely comfortable to sit in.
