Set of six dining chairs, in oak and patterned fabric, by Guillerme & Chambron, France, 1960s.
Set of six sturdy, decorative dining chairs in solid oak by Guillerme and Chambron. These chairs show a few characteristics of this French designer duo. Firstly, the heavily tapered legs and a sculptural back. Secondly, the sheer size and wide seat of these chairs show strong resemblances to their lounge and easy chairs that are robust and sturdy. The fabric shows a geometric, pop art like pattern. The wood shows a nice overall patina.
The French designer duo Jacques Chambron (1914-2001) and Robert Guillerme (1913-1990) started their production postwar. Many of the furniture designed by this duo this piece shows a strong character and has a great expressive woodwork. The duo installed themselves in an old factory were the machinery was used to make rifles. Guillerme & Chambron saw the potential of these machinery and decided to continue production as it was installed and used them for the design of their high back chairs. The line of different furniture pieces was made in small editions. They call their collection “Votre Maison” which means “Your home.”
