Louis XV (fifteenth) furniture is also referred to as Rococo. These chairs are distinguishable by their curved forms, absence of stretchers, cabriole legs, and delicate, feminine appearance. Popular motifs include: shells, baskets/sprays of flowers, ribbons, symbols of love, and pastoral/romantic scenes.
The Marseilles Chair is an exemplary bergère, designed in classic Louis XVI style. The plush cushions are covered in a jacquard-woven, yarn-dyed fabric with a velvet coral pattern. Outside shell upholstered with a coordinating solid for a designer look. When paired with the Marseilles Ottoman, it makes a great reading chair in a bedroom or cozy place to watch television.
