Manner of A. M. E. Fournier French

Not on view

With its deeply tufted back and seat, this innovative and amusing armchair epitomizes the desire for originality and variety combined with a concern for comfort that was charactersitic of the Second Empire. Seat furniture carved in this manner is generally associated with the Parisian upholsterer A.M.E. Fournier, who supplied at least one rope stool, now at the Musée National du Château de Compiègne.
