Striking and artistically executed, this set of Art Nouveau chairs with exaggerated high backs feature geometric design paired with inspiration from nature with an inlaid wood design of gingko leaves. Armchairs have curved cage-like arms that accent the curved seats. Both sidechairs and armchairs have slightly splayed legs. Seats are newly professionally upholstered in a neutral fabric so as not to distract from the remarkable chair design.
