One-of-a-kind Baroque oversized majestic chair resembling a throne, with square shaped high upholstered back. Hand-carved giltwood detailed winged cherubs armrest supports supported on fluted slightly S-scrolled legs connecting with fluted X-shaped cross stretcher.
The Baroque style became prominent during the reign of King Louis XIV, a warrior fighting to restore peace. It was crucial for him to establish an image of power and strength, which he expressed in his majestic furniture style and palaces. Furniture in this dramatic design is classic and and compliments a classical setting or adds exuberant contrasting highlights to modern or contemporary interiors.
