Stunning shaped pair of lounge chairs made by unknown designer or manufacturer. They’ve got a cool shape and are reupholstered in premium off-white mohair. The seat and backrest are slightly angled, and the armrests go from high on the front to low at the back. A cool feature on the armrests is that they have an unique open-worked design. Practical for picking them up but also visually pleasing. The solid beech wooden legs in an angle have a nice original patina. These chairs are in the style of Jean Royere and Pierre Guariche, the designer is unknown, but these chairs are true aesthetic masterpieces an breathe quality all over. You want to sit in them and never get up. Kindly note that the listed price is for the pair.
About Royère’s style; A self-taught French craftsman, decorator and furniture maker, Jean Royère exhibited a theatrical flair throughout his influential career, creating a body of work caught between prewar elegance and post-war modernity. Or, perhaps a better way to define his work is design that bridged the gap between the two styles, exhibiting sleek silhouettes and forms while playing with more imaginative, fanciful themes. What immediately appealed to about Jean Royère’s work was the enormous freedom the pieces manifest. In terms of forms, materials, and techniques, this was clearly someone bent on pursuing an aesthetic quest to its logical conclusion. All his creations are timeless and unique in their genre.
