French Bergere chairs are antique designs that can bring the magic of French elegance into your home. The chairs come in different types and are mostly purchased for the interior décor value they have. A Bergere chair is a type of upholstered armchair that can be traced back to the 18th century. It features closed sides around the arms and the back. The Bergere chairs are considered to be the first chair designs to fully focus on comfort and relaxation but ever since they have evolved to offer much more than that.
There are three main types of French Bergere chairs that you can find today. Each of these options can work in any space and it’s just a matter of picking something that appeals to you personally.
Bergere a la Reine
The Bergere a la Reine is a common and popular choice due to its high armrests and a comfortable flat back. The back is also quite high compared to the other types. It features a straight top with unique and beautiful sloping sides around the arms. The chair is also broader giving you enough space in-between. The upholstery is different but the fabric is very common with the Bergere a la Reine.
Bergere en Cabriolet
The Bergere en Cabriolet is relatively more vintage compared to the Bergere a la Reine. It comes with a simple rounded back which tends to be lower too. The lower height is matched with lower curved armrests. The rounded back is quite comfortable. The chairs also lie very low. However, it’s the vintage look that appeals to most people when it comes to the Bergere en Cabriolet.
The Bergere Marquise is a petite design that usually has a low and curved back. The back seamlessly connects with the armrests. It’s also higher but thinner compared to the other two options above. The biggest difference though between the Bergere Marquise and the other options is the size. The chair is smaller in many aspects.
There are many chairs in the market that have tried to emulate the French Bergere design. If you’re looking for something authentic, you will need to identify a quality chair from the rest.
