In the making for over twenty million years.....tell me what that is worth.These fantastic finds are perfect joined together for a multi level coffee table, side table or casters can be added to the bottom for a dining table seat. These were a limited find, I only have 13. My next order will arrive in twenty million years.

    The Aestate: Guide to Louis-style Chairs

    Secret dream of mine: rescue an ugly dirty landfill-bound leather couch and turn it into something new... Like a butterfly chair cover.

    Louis XVI (sixteenth) aka Neo-Classical.Louis XVI chairs are easy to spot because they always have the fluted leg. Where the Louis XV chairs were curvy, these are very angular with straight lines. Popular motifs include: columns, pilasters, wreaths, garlands, drapery, floral festoons, rosettes, lyres, urns and ancient mythology.

    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.
