Louis Chairs Sell Fast From Our Austin Estate Sales.

Square back, round back, oval back, straight legs, curved legs, upholstered, caned, bergere, whatever the style, Louis chairs fly out of the doors of our estate sales every single time.

You cannot open any addition of Architural Digest and not find a Louis chair. 

Typically it will be an antique, a pair, single chair or six around a dining room table.  They can be found in living rooms, bedroom, closets, dressing rooms, and hallways. 

Velvet is a common choice for an elegant room, but we see all kinds of fabrics used.  Silk, Mohair, leather, and even hot Pink satin for those with a real creative flair which brings to the types of buyers.  Collectors, decorators, and homeowners.

Collectors are typically looking for perfect condition that will not require any work whereas decorators and homeowners are likely going to strip, sand, paint and reupholster so condition doesn’t matter.

Chaise, chairs, settee, and sofas.

Not only are the Louis chairs a hot item, the chaise, and sofas are also desirable. 

The chairs and sofas can be placed in any decor, not just traditional. This modern example would be fantastic in any chic room, and Black and White are always a winning choice. 

Metallic paint goes a long way.

Even for a beginner, you cannot go wrong with metallic paint.

The easiest way to determine what type of chair you have is by looking at the legs. 

Straight legs are typically  XVI, Louie the 16th.

Bergere chairs are described as an enclosed upholstered French armchair (fauteuil) with an upholstered back and armrests on upholstered frames.
