A Rare Pair of Viennese Armchairs *SOLD
These extraordinary Armchairs in Mahogany and Mahogany veneer, designed and executed in museum quality, are an excellent example of the elegant, almost modern style of the early Viennese Biedermeier and stand for spectacular craftsmanship of the highest standards. The shape with the typical curved lines inspired the Art Deco Style more than 100 years later.
Furniture from the early 19th Century made in Mahogany and Mahogany veneer, was only reserved for the very wealthy, aristocratic society and unaffordable for the Bourgeoisie or poorer aristocratic classes.
Such perfectly designed and executed furniture from this era today mostly exists in museum collections only, such as Albertina, executed by Josef Danhauser, at the MAK museum, Geymüllerschlössl Collection, or The Imperial Furniture Collection, all situated in Vienna.
The chairs got renovated with the utmost care in our workshops. Seat and backseat are freshly upholstered using traditional techniques and are now ready for a cover fabric of your choice. We do offer upholstery services in-house and have access to an excellent network of fabric manufacturers.
