The design of the Versaille_chair was inspired by a trip that we made in Paris, in occasion of Maison et Objet in 2011.
During the trip we visited the design fair, we bought fabrics and tapestry and look at original antique furniture. We visited Marché Saint-Pierre, Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt, visited shop and upholstery workshop.
It was overwhelming to experience their passion and love for upholstery, fabrics, furniture and antiques. French have a great tradition in furniture and visiting the royal Versailles_castles we sow few pieces that inspired us to explore more the traditional methods of french upholstery.
The back of our Versailles_chair is reproducing a quite complex way to stuff with fiber and hand-stitching the hessian.
