Degaulle either had a pair like this ....or wishes he did. This big beautiful pair of French Club chairs have subtle lines that lend themselves to every kind of furnishings, be it Victorian, Deco, mid-century or contemporary. They are fortunate to have all original leather and a rather deep seat of 23". We purchased this pair from a reputable dealer in the Champagne region who we have worked with for 20 years. The key to have these contacts,is they grew up in the areas that we search and have th...

We call this pair Royal Mustache, due to their sheer volume and presence. Big rounded arms & wonderful steam pleated kerfing(folds to accommodate thick leather) on the top of those arms. They have all their original leather. This pair has all original leather in very good condition, still supple. They are deep enough to accommodate both a tall or shorter person. Circa early 1940's, this pair is yet another example of what amazing care was given to these treasured chairs by their previous owners....

Gendarme of course refers to the French policemans hat which is the same as Napoleons classic chapeau. High in the center with a gentle slope that finishes in a crisp point at the corners. I was fortunate to snag this pair at a large outdoor show south of Paris. The competition is fierce at these hugs shows and most chairs have been bought up before I get a shot at them. There are many models that I pass for lack of style, materials used or overall condition. Gendarme are always on the top of o...

Wow, Most French leather club chairs come in various shades of brown, cognac or sand. We see the rare red or black chair... but this rich emerald green salon set is exceptional. Both the couch and chairs sit low and deep. They have all original leather and a blemish here and there which we consider age appropriate wear. The green patina is faded to beige in some areas, we love it. That a complete set survived 60-70 years in this very good condition is a testimony to the family that we bough it f...

Big, rounded, fully French Club chairs. This style is one we never hesitate when searching for classic club chairs. The rollback head was one of the more prevalent styles found in Mens clubs from the 1930's to the 1960's. It seems everyone that frequented these clubs, wanted a similar pair. This pair hail from the 1930's to early 40's. These old soldiers have that wonderful high relief feel and a wonderful patina. They have had their cushions restored and color matched. They measure:Depth-41", ...

Wingback French club chairs give you a sense of deep comfort. They make you want to curl up with a good book and toss the rest of the day. This pair of Wingbacks come from the Swiss border of South west France. They were obviously cared for by their previous owners. We purchased these from a dealer who,like us,sources his club chairs from private homes. This pair from the mid 1940's in excellent overall condition. They measure:Depth-36", width-35", height-37", seat depth-22", seat width-20",seat...

Cream set of 4 matching French Leather Club chairs that were restored probably 30 years ago by a Madame in Normandie. They are in excellent overall condition. They set wide and deep. Interestingly, she decided that not all guests enjoyed the same seat so three have Dunlop-pillow(a rubberized foam) filling) and the fourth seat has a down/foam blend. It's kinda cool... we can however recreate the fourth chair cushion to match if requested. A few small rub marks here and there but overall excellen...
