Louis Majorelle Walnut Settee


This French Art Nouveau carved walnut settee by Louis Majorelle is an attractive piece that depends upon its elaborate architecture instead of intricate detailing in the wood for its beauty, and its beauty does not disappoint. The charming construction seems to both bow inward to crown the heads of the sitters, while bowing outward to allow ample invitation for comfortable seating. The legs and arms of the chair are in charming converse orientation, adding gracefully to the complexity of the simply elegant piece.

Customization: The settee is currently upholstered in a light silver patterned fabric, but can be reupholstered in any colorway of your choosing upon requestwe have shown a variety of colorways here as examples.

*Please allow minimum 4 weeks for custom upholstery.*
