You can feel like a French aristocrat in your home by choosing the right furnishings. Our French oval back dining chairs are a beautiful testament to the nuances of the goût grec period, which strayed away from the florid stylings of the previous era. The French felt a sudden nostalgia for the magnificence of the Louis XIV’s reign and brought about a neoclassical revision that was heavily inspired by Greek architecture and Rococo furnishings. We proudly present the Louis XVI medallion chair, which has been carved, sanded, and finished by hand.
Our oval dining chairs are made of Honduran mahogany, which is less brittle than soft pine yet more flexible than hard oak. This species of mahogany is also revered for its superior workability and dimensional stability. The name of these chairs derives from the shape and slight curve of the chair’s backrest. Medallion chairs are incredibly comfortable to sit in, making them a wonderful choice for entertaining. Each chair is fitted with a padded coil spring seat cushion and a tufted backrest.
Our French oval back dining chair is eligible for customization:
- Stock upholstery options include fabric, leather, or velvet
- Stain options include cherry, rosewood, walnut, pine, or oak
- Custom dimensions can be requested to suit a particular space
Our oval dining chairs feature hand-carved details on the crest rail and signature rosettes, as well as fluted straight legs that terminate to round feet.
