Solid beechwood frame, green bronze lacquer painting with patinated gold leaf finished details. Upholstering with COM.

We took inspiration from a model displayed at Chateau de Malmaison.

Chateau de Malmaison was bought by Josephine de Beauharnais for herself and her husband General Napoleon Bonaparte in 1799. She made major improvements including the building of a heated orangerie and the creation of a famous rose garden. Birds and animals of all sorts began to enrich the garden.  Kangaroos, zebras, ostriches, llamas… were roaming free among the grounds. Chateau de Malmaison is a beautiful and elegant country house filled with Empire period furniture, sculpture and paintings.
