Learn about Bergere Chair

A fairly wide, deep, upholstered armchair used in the drawing room, often accompanying a settee, in the French, a canape. The form was developed in France during the mid-18th century, though it was quickly adopted by English designers such as Chippendale and Sheraton. The seat frame is over-upholstered, but the rest of the wooden framing is exposed. It is generally carved, and of walnut if the timber is exposed. if made of an inferior timber such as beech or fruitwood, it may have a painted or gilded finish.
