Rococo chair. This fits the Rococo style because it began with interior design. The style was influenced by French aristocrats wanting to bring the Baroque style from the Palace of Versailles into their new homes and it evolved into the new Rococo style. They loved the elaborate floral patterns. A lot of Rococo pieces were textile and wood, like this chair, because they were furniture pieces.
Made for George IV, by Morel and Seddon made in 1828. Set of thirteen mahogany armchairs, carved and gilded, with straight back and slightly bowed front. Top rail carved with hipped foliate scrolls and central palmette. Armrests terminate in lions' heads. Front legs in form of lions' paws. Variously upholstered in green and red silk damask.
