Mid-century designers often used thick, hardwearing linen to upholster chairs in an array of bold colours. While antique linen chairs often favoured softer, yielding cloth that formed the basis for elegant designs such as the linen Bergère chair.What is a Bergère chair?Originating in Paris during the French Regency period (17-15-1723), the Bergère chair passed through many iterations to reach its commonly known Louis XVI Directoire style. Featuring upholstered seats, backs and armrests, the framework of these pieces was often crafted from walnut or mahogany. Fitted with loose yet tailored cushions, linen Bergère chairs were, and still are, incredibly popular among style arbiters and designers worldwide.Often used in traditional interiors, the Bergère, or “Shepherdess” in English, adds an inimitable sense of taste and high-style to a living room or hallway. Popularly upholstered in linen, these chairs are perfect for experimenting with fabric and pattern. A blue and white ticking stripe will give an air of seaside charm, while a neutrally hued linen chair with a restrained white-washed frame elevates contemporary interiors with ease.Source one-of-a-kind vintage chairs upholstered in linen from our seller-curated marketplace.
