Hudgens’ Bergere Chairs

Mahogany and mahogany veneers, poplar, wool upholstery; 24"

My designer friend Sally Gresham asked if I could copy a 19th century Russian Empire bergere chair; she needed two for her redesign of a Georgetown townhouse. My only reference was a grainy photograph. After equal parts squinting, head scratching and research, I was able to develop a model of the chair for her approval. Her client, though not a Romanov, was delighted with these large and elegant chairs.
