Pierre Chareau '1883-1950', Two Armchairs, Early 1920s

Pierre Chareau '1883-1950', Two Armchairs, Early 1920s


    Extremely rare and beautiful paire de fauteuils, modèle 'MF 208/217' by Pierre Chareau. He is often cited as one of France’s first truly modern architects. Featuring minimalist contours, enveloping backrest and armrests in full, curved legs. Executed in mahogany and chocolate brown velvet upholstery, the chairs have a generous scale, and sit very comfortably. Pierre Chareau was one of the premier French designers of the Art Deco movement, and original examples of his works are extremely rare and found in prominent museums.
