Have a Seat, Stay A While

Some people have a fetish for shoes and purses. I have one for chairs.

Take this beautiful 19th c. Empire Chair with Ormolu, for instance...
Beautifully restored walnut Empire chair with original ormolu. Original leather upholstery and french brass tacks.

Or this gorgeous Set of 6 19th c. Empire Marquetry Chairs in Belgian Linen
late 19th c.
Simple and elegant Empire style chairs with marquetry work. Upholstered in a white belgian linen.

Or even.....
Pair 19th c. Louis XIII Chairs
19th c.
Beautifully carved Louis XII chairs. Fully restored and upholstered in a thick Belgian Linen with french brass tacks.

And what about this lovely
19th c. Painted Louis XVI Chair
c. 1880-1910.
Charming Louis XVI chair with caned back and carved details throughout. Painted in a pale grey white with soft patina. Burlap upholstered seat.

So many choices, such little seating time.......

All part of my new inventory at disegno Karina Gentinetta.....

Take a seat, any seat, won't you stay a while??????
