In the early 1900s, a group of French artists established a design collective called the Societé des artistes décorateurs, a group which pioneered the Art Deco design movement. Architecture, art, design, fashion, and furniture were all influenced by this movement which swept rapidly across the globe. Characterized by its bold, curvilinear frame, this upholstered three-seat settee is a gorgeous example of French Art Deco of the 1930s. The settee boasts a beautiful, sinuous silhouette outlined by bent fruitwood railings that flow smoothly from the shell back to the rounded arms to the splayed front legs. The sofa is finished with peachy, pink-orange velvet upholstery, contrasted by thin black piping along each cushion and secured to the frame by a dense border of hobnail studs. Gently worn from years of use, the velvet upholstery has developed a subdued color and softened texture that enriches any space with antique character.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
