These closed armchairs (referred to as “directoire bergeres”) are a highly sought after style originating in Northern Italy around the early 1800s.  This chair is a variant of the original Bergere chair which usually had more carving in the legs and arms.  There are bronze medallions on the arms and the legs have a nice, modern feel while still retaining the antiquity’s warmth.
