Celery Green Bergere: Before and After

When I found this French Bergere armchair with caning in great condition, I was inspired to reinvent it as a modern piece. Bergere chairs first appeared during the French Regency and this one was likely created during the American Empire Revival Period. I refinished the wood by sanding, priming, and then layering a coat of glossy black enamel lacquer. One panel of the caning had to be completely replaced.

With the help of a talented upholsterer, this French arm chair has come to life in a celery green cotton linen that is super soft and comfy. This item is in my shop now.
While, I’m getting ready to experience France and Italy firsthand, I will make sure not to leave you hanging while I’m away. Look forward to pictures of Spa styling that I just completed as well as photos from a lighting spree to inspire you.
