Pair of Thuya Wood Art Deco Period Armchairs, France circa 1930


These Art Deco period armchairs possess an extraordinary silhouette. The bold curves and the change in scale as the arms descend to the floor are striking elements that give these chairs their sculptural appearance. The beauty of Art Deco chairs is that, indeed, the makers thought of them as being pieces in an interior that needed to be beautiful from every direction. Every detail was considered when creating these chairs with the most important of course being comfort. The slant to the back and the depth of the seat are quite inviting and the angle of the arms to each chair fit easily when seated to provide a maximum degree of ease. Each of the chairs is sheathed in Thuya Burlwood notable for its exotic pattern of tight swirls. Thuya (pronounced Twee-ya) is a timber found primarily in Morocco and southern Spain desirable for its distinctive and unusual pattern of the burl. Burl formations are near the root base of the tree and must be worked by hand when transforming the timber into useable material. Please notice that each chair is slightly raised with the risers coloured to resemble ebony, the blackest wood known, that are contoured to follow the profile of each chair base. These chairs have been freshly upholstered in a silver platinum velvet.
