This armchair checks all the boxes. It is made entirely of mahogany. It has excellent carvings of winged fierce lions, monopodia legs terminating in claw feet, all with exquisite design and details. This type of armchair can be considered a tub chair due to having a semicircular form that appears as a single upholstered piece. It was reupholstered with a traditional ‘reddish’ fabric with the inside of the back tufted with buttons for added plushness. In addition to being comfortable and sturdy, the exquisite and dramatic carvings make this chair a statement of greatness in any room.
