The chairs have drop in seats, which have been newly upholstered in top quality hard wearing taupe shade wool & cotton upholstery. This set consists of 6 side chairs and 2 armchairs. The shaped ladder-backs are typical of French provincial chairs. The top rail of the ladder-back features elegant floral carvings. This floral carving is repeated as a cartouche on the front rails of serpentine chair frame, below the seat. The front legs feature a pretty cabriole design and terminate on scroll toes. Underneath, the chairs are connected with four ring turned stretchers to ensure they are sturdy. The backs of the legs are shaped which is a sign of good quality. The chairs are very comfortable, solid in joint and would look good in either a traditional or contemporary setting.
