Guillerme & Chambron Set of Ten Chairs in Oak and Cord
Guillerme & Chambron for Votre Maison, set of ten dining chairs, oak and rope, France, 1960s.
Set of ten elegant dining chairs in solid oak by Guillerme and Chambron. These chairs show the characteristic frame of this French designer duo. Tapered legs and a sculptural back with a downwards facing peak backrest. The backrests of these chairs are thus curved and sculpted. The wood shows a nice overall patina that combines wonderfully with the raw, natural appearance of the cord.
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”.
