Superb PAIR Art Deco armchairs in the manner of Paul Follot. The comfortable proportions and stylish design is neatly executed in fruit wood. Note the low relief stylized floral carving on the curved crest rails which sweep into the arm support and continue down to form the round front leg. This graceful transition creates a pleasing silhouette.
