Louis Majorelle "Ombellifères" Settee and Side Chairs
A French Art Nouveau carved wood "Ombellifères" suite, consisting of two armchairs and a settee, by Louis Majorelle. The suite is hand carved with capitals of Berce des Prés (Hogweed) and columns of Ancolie (Columbine) leaves. In order to enhance the biomorphic design of his furniture, Majorelle studied the way the ribbed stems of hogweed flowers seamlessly flowed into each other, a design practice evident in the chairs sweeping arms.
Customization: This suite is currently upholstered in an aubergine colored textured fabric, but can be reupholstered in any color or fabric of your choosing upon request.
*Please allow minimum 4 weeks for custom upholstery.*
