There are few websites better designed to help you to take life easy than http://www.taillardat.fr. This French firm’s site showcases desks, beds, tables and stools galore, but it is its particularly large selection of sofas, chairs and armchairs that attract many. All its designs are inspired by historical furniture designs from the 18th and 19th centuries, with rich carving, inlays, gilding, upholstery and other decorative refinements. Armchairs that reproduce the elegance and sophistication of periods such as Louis XV, Louis XVI and Regency may be found in all their finery on their dedicated page at http://www.taillardat.fr/collection-fauteuils-en.php.
Meanwhile, if you click on the image below, you’ll be taken to Taillardat’s range of sofas. The Etienne model pictured here is a 2-seater, but 3- and 4-seaters are all available. The most common wood used in these designs is beech, which is often painted or waxed. The range of sizes and colours in which Taillardat sofas come makes them suitable for almost any room in the home. They will blend in with a wide variety of backdrops (wallpaper, hung tapestries, painted walls etc).
