The club armchair, French or English?
A perfect asset to give a warm and vintage side to its interior. At the end of the 19th century, there were seats in the English Gentlemen's Club with a deep seat and wooden armrest. More pleasant than a chair, it is in France that we find the origin of this flagship model: the "comfortable chair". Designed with spring suspensions and a basan non-slip coating that has brought it its originality.

This generously shaped model with its wide armrests was exported to England in the 1920s and found its place in the Clubs, which gave it its name. It will bring comfort and an authentic side to the living room.
A design that evolves over time
The shell armrest is the flagship. In the 1920s, the armrests changed, the vintage seat lost its curves. After the 1930s, it underwent a real transformation: more inclined and softer, it was adorned with a finish in "mustache" or "brace".
