Lourdais Fireside Armchair, Chippendale Style


Lourdais Fireside Armchair

Chippendale Style, solid walnut frame, circa 1970

This lovely handcrafted Chippendale Style Fireside Armchair draws inspiration from the French countryside. This chair is solid and beautiful, easily meets the demands of daily use. It is relentless in function and appeal. A companion, Charolais, armless chair is available, as shown. Lourdais & Charolais are available for purchase together. Together or alone, these chairs are a perfect addition, and will charm their way to never leave your home.


Lourdais Fireside Armchair has a slightly camel shaped back.

The outside back is upholstered in Scalamandre fabric of wide striped carnelian and carmine reds, embellished with woven gold thread.

The upper front back is upholstered in a soft swirling paisley pattern chenille fabric, in warm earth tones of brown, umber, brick red, terracotta, yellow ochre, warm grey, burnt sienna, tan and deep moss green.

The chair seat is of a densely woven, lustrous, lush, and resilient Belgium wool mohair in the color mink. Mohair upholstery fabric doesn’t pill or mat and is naturally resistant to dirt, so cleanup is a breeze.

The chair is corded in a hunt club wool fabric; small, woven, three eighths inch houndstooth pattern, with colors of cranberry against a walnut brown background.

The chair frame is solid walnut, dark stain, with gently curved arms, straight front legs, swept back legs with a stretcher between front and back.

About the name.

Lourdais is a French breed of cattle from the Pyrenees countryside, known to be of excellent and stalwart behavior and of calm soothing temperament. The breed fell to 30 cows and one bull in the 1980s, but thanks to a dedication of preserving the breed, there are currently 170 cows and 20 bulls. Why, the name? The original frame is circa 1970s, and like the Lourdais, this chair remains one of a very few, gracing the French countryside and homes like yours, today
