Guillerme et Chambron,'Grand Repos' lounge chair, oak and blue velvet re-upholstery, France, 1960s.
Guillerme and Chambron are known for their high quality solid oak furniture, from which this is another great example. This chair with a high back has an interesting, sculptural shape, the legs and armrests blend over into each other creating a gap between the seat and the armrest. The carved edges of the frame are delicate and make this chair a little more sophisticated than other designs by the duo. The back consists of spindles that hold the back cushion in a curved, comfortable position. This model features the highest backrest the duo has designed, therefore its name 'Grand Repos' The combination of oak with the bright blue velvet upholstery, which is in great condition, give an alluring look.
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 this 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”.
