If you admire the grandeur and neoclassical details of French interior design, we have just the solution you need to create a unique dining experience for your family and guests. Our Louis XVI dining chairs are a true testament to the interior tastes of the late 18th century. Seat backs were often oval or shaped like shields, and chair frames were often neat or angular in nature. Our master craftsmen have carefully preserved the authenticity of this revered French style by reproducing each Louis XVI side chair from an actual Louis XVI antique.
A Louis XVI chair is stately in design and will lend an old-world quality to your new and improved dining room. We use only the finest Honduran mahogany because it is less brittle than pine yet more flexible than oak. Mahogany is also esteemed for its superior workability, dimensional stability, moderate rot resistance, and a unique grain pattern that seems to glow beneath our satin semi-gloss finish. We also provide antiquing and distressing services to anyone who might like a weathered look to complement their vintage or retro design scheme.
Every Louis XVI side chair features:
- Lovely cane backing and well-sprung coil cushions
- Custom paint colors or wood-tone finishes available
- Upholstery options include fabric, leather, and velvet
