Jean-Baptiste-Claude Sené is a great  Louis XVI style chair maker who became master menuisier in 1769.

For this reason, he supplied the French royal family with furniture.

Sené crafted a particularly famous bed for Queen Marie-Antoinette for the Chateau de Fontainebleau.


The characteristics of Louis XVI style chairs are elegance, neoclassicism, lightness and simplicity of form.

Georges Jacob and Jean-Baptiste-Claude Sené are the most notable craftsmen of Louis XVI chairs.
