Louis Majorelle Pair of "Siège d'Aubépine" Armchairs


This pair of French Art Nouveau "Siège d'Aubépine" armchairs, by Louis Majorelle, are decorated on their back edges, arms, legs and seat supports with carved hawthorn leaves and berries. The inclusion of these intricate, tightly-grouped sections of natural wonder is made possible but the architecturally striking border space that flank the supporting structures of the piece. Sold exclusively as a matching set.

The decoration on this piece is particularly sensitive to the overall architecture and design of the work; you will find that the vegetal forms, which always appear to be caught in some invisible breeze, sweep upward or downward, left or right, depending on their placement on the overall design.
