Antique French Louis XIII Dining Chairs

We have a lovely treat for you today, with photos of our antique French Louis XIII dining chairs in our customer Stephen’s home!

Antique French Louis XIII chairWe found a set of six fabulous antique French Renaissance Louis XIII style dining chairs on one of our recent buying trips in Europe. We guessed (rightly!) that if we bought them then we’d find a customer back in the USA who would love them too. These wood dining chairs would be a perfect fit in your antique dining room. They bring the ability to complement your accent chairs or other antique furniture.

This is just one of the six chairs. You can see the blue damask upholstery is a great way to add a dash of elegant color to a dining room.

The armless chairs are crafted with a walnut wood frame and they date to the late 19th century or early 20th century.  They feature a lovely design of gently curved stretchers forming an X shape, accented by a majestic finial in the center of the X.  The strong shape beneath the seat is softened by the gentle blue upholstery. The craftsmanship makes this dining chairs set a perfect complement to your country dining or French country dining room. We could even see these beauties in your living room or as kitchen chairs or dining sidechairs.

Traditional dining room with antique Louis XIII chairs

Stephen sent us some photos of the antique chairs in his dining room. You can see how impressive they look! When I saw his emailed photo, I immediately said: “It’s like he picked the paint based on the chairs rather than the other way around!” Isn’t the color match between the walls and the chairs uncanny? Stephen obviously has an excellent eye for color and he chose well. Stephen commented: “Yes!!! The fabric matches the walls perfectly.”

Bringing the Dining Room Together

This is another view of Stephen’s dining room. This room is so beautifully put together. The blue on the walls is a classic color that reminds us of some of the regal salons of Paris. Stephen said he found the other two dining chairs in an antique store in California. He also sleuthed out some terrific buffets for the room online. The chandelier is great too. Often people are nervous about having too large a chandelier over the table and they tend to err on the small side. Stephen went for it with this crystal extravaganza and it is perfect!

All in all, it’s a fabulous room and Stephen has an amazing eye for interior design.  Thank you Stephen for sharing these inspiring photos. We are so happy that you loved the antique Louis XIII chairs. We think they look superb in your dining room. We wish Stephen many celebratory evenings with friends gathered around that table!
