Antique Fauteuil Chairs

A fauteuil is an open-arm chair with an exposed wooden frame originating in France in the early 17th century.

A fauteuil is made of wood, and frequently with carved relief ornament. It is typically upholstered on the seat, the seat back and on the arms (manchettes). Some fauteuils have a valenced front seat rail which is padding that extends slightly over the apron. The exposed wooden elements are often gilded or otherwise painted.
