Louis XVI Dining Chair

A pair of Louis XVI style side chairs painted and upholstered in a soft blue tooled leather with nail heads.

The Louis XVI style was all about simplicity, which replaced the exotic over the top ornate styles of Louis XV. Between 1760-1789 most furniture lost the extra fuss and the lines became more architectural and straight. Painted chairs and tables were trimmed in gold or another contrasting color. Gilded wood became popular for chairs, and legs and vertical supports appeared turned resembling spindles, quivers, columns and balusters. Flat surfaces and right angles were the popular in this style and architectural motifs were still used as decorative elements.
