Art Nouveau side chair

This is a current project in the works for a client in Paris, a set of matching Art Nouveau side chairs. Often interior designers will provide us with photos or sketches of the piece they are looking to create, this is the representation we were presented with. There will be several modifications to the chair including the fabric and finish. The organic shapes in Art Nouveau pieces often were inspired by plant forms, incorporating a sense of movement and harmony within the organic curves. Art Nouveau style is a key period in the evolution of the historical styles bridging the neoclassical and modern periods. Over time the Art Nouveau period expanded the inspirational elements it drew designs and organic forms incorporating seaweed, grass and even insects. These natural forms often were incorporated into elaborate inlays but the main component was in the overall structure.
