Russian neoclassical side chair.

Solid beechwood and curved plywood frame, patinated green bronze lacquer finishings.

Upholstering with COM. Custom dyed and weaved cable and trim by Maison Verrier.


An Empire Russian model from the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg, especially inspired this chair.

The back is not upholstered while the chair is comfortable due to its curve.


The glorious ancient Greek and Roman Empires influenced the French Empire style during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The Empire style achieved great popularity. It was therefore adopted in courts throughout Europe, especially in Russia.
