General Description

Fashion designer, Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel, originally installed this carved tapestry arm chair at Villa La Pausa, and it remained part of the villa's decor through the residency of Wendy and Emery Reves. Flemish-influenced Baroque chairs like this were popular during the reigns of Charles II, James II, and William and Mary.
