With its dramatic curves, this original Art Deco French leather club chair features a deep comfortable seat. Inspired by Rococo of the 18th century France, this design was born during the Art Moderne movement in France from the 1920s-1940s and became a statement piece of Parisian chic.

Very often referred as fleur-de-lys chairs, the literal translation from the French 'Chapeau de Gendarme' should really have been 'Police Officer's Hat' as it clearly resembled the shape French police officers' hats wore in the 1920s.

The original vintage Chapeau de Gendarme club chairs are becoming increasingly difficult to find and we are lucky to be able to offer this 'Gendarme' in such a good condition. The leather has been cleaned and conditioned to provide a long lasting finish and bring this chair back to its original glory.

Whether set in an industrial decor or in an elegantly refined home, the Gendarme lounge chair will add a wonderful air of 1920s "je ne sait quoi" to your home!

Note: The pillow dimension or actual seating space is 54cm deep and 42cm to 51cm wide as the pillow widens with the seat.
