Joan Busquets Pair of Blue Floral Giltwood Armchairs
This pair of Spanish Art Nouveau armchairs with giltwood frames, by Joan Busquets, were likely made for Antonio Gaudi's Palacio Güell in Barcelona. The light blue floral upholstery, paired with a textured slate blue backing, is complemented perfectly by its giltwood frames, carved with sinuous lines and romantic, swirling scrolls—upon viewing, these are certainly worth of a palatial home. Sold exclusively as a matching set.
