When travelling around Paris, I was forever taking note of the gorgeous range of styles of chairs - Europe is highly reknowned for their style of furnishings.
Alot of the styles date back centuries when extensive time was taken to design & manufacture just one chair. There was no such thing as mass manufacturing by machines back then. Each chair was designed with love, attention & devotion. Such sweet love gives the chairs of the past a unique cultural look & feel! I love the intricate carving, the curvaceous styling & the fabrics chosen for each individual piece.
Back when importance was placed on furnishings signifying class, many genuine classic chairs were born. What I find amazing is how many of these styles have lasted the centuries of furnishings & are still created today. We are fortunately blessed for the great manufacturers of the bygone years.
