French Art Deco Set Six Cherry Chairs, France circa 1930
French Art Deco Set Six Cherry Chairs, France c.1930. The tall and slender lines of these chairs conjures up the power of neoclassical taste developed at the end of the eighteenth century when refinement and purity of detail were paramount values. Art Deco design also exhibited this same respect and desire for clean visual sight lines and these chairs are a prime example. Each chair has a tall and slender back with a curved top rail defined by the "X" stretcher visible in the back and this motif appears in many Neoclassical designs. All four legs have a slender tapered profile highlighted with a moulded edge detail that each end in the original brass caps known as "sabots". A sabot is a type of wooden shoe invented to protect a foot from the outside elements. When applied to furniture "sabots", always made of brass or gilded bronze, are found at the end of legs and used to both protect the wood but also to be reflective of any light in order to visually identify their location. The original green leatherette material on each of the six seats is placed in an intriguing way with the curve of the back of the seat exposing more timber than is usually seen. The subtle change in proportion of the seats gives this set of French Art Deco chairs a unique appeal. The slightly rounded shape to the back of each chair makes them extremely comfortable and easy to sit in while enjoying a meal.
