Armchair (Normandie) 1934. Walnut and gilt bronze Pierre Patout. This pair of armchairs is from the room’s suite of seating furniture; the machine-woven upholstery incorporates a red shield with two lions passant—a heraldic device symbolizing the French province of Normandie, for which the liner was named and where her home port, Le Havre, is located. Underneath each seat was a mechanism used to anchor the chair to the floor when seas were rough.
