Fauteuil furnishings originated in France during the seventeenth century. Laurel Crown’s Louis XV fauteuil armchair is as close as it comes to enjoying this classic furnishing style right at home. We build all French fauteuil chairs with the finest Honduran mahogany we can find because it is revered for superior workability, dimensional stability, and reasonable rot resistance. Honduran mahogany is also less brittle than soft pines yet more flexible than hard oaks. Accentuating the stunning reddish-brown hue of mahogany is a satin semi-gloss finish that will glow for years to come.
Breathe life back into any space with the help of our fauteuil chair. Every chair is carved, sanded, and finished by hand to ensure authentic quality down to the minutest detail. We stopped at nothing to recreate the classic details of the Louis XV era, including a floral motif crest rail, cabriole legs, French scroll feet, and so much more. Best of all, our sofa ball-and-claw chairs are comfortable. Each armchair features a tufted backrest and padded armrests.
Each Louis XV fauteuil armchair is eligible for an array of customizations:
- Add an antiqued, distressed, or washed finish to create a worn, old-world look
- Use your own material or select from our fabric, leather, and velvet upholstery options
- Choose a different stain to match cherry, rosewood, walnut, pine, or other wood tones
Personalizing our French fauteuil chair is simple and straight-forward. With the help of our design department, you can provide custom dimensions or the photograph of an original antique you would like us to reproduce. Once you submit your project proposal, we can begin drafting concept sketches. If you have any questions about the fauteuil chair or customization, please contact Laurel Crown today for further assistance.
