Club chair
Club chair
Club chair is a type of armchair, usually covered in leather. It was created and made in France. Before it came to be known under its current name, it first appeared as the fauteuil confortable, the "comfortable armchair". It was given this name to distinguish it from the fauteuil de style, which had straighter lines and was less enveloping.
The craftsmen involved in the design of the chair were unknown. The origins of the term "club" are unclear, but it may be a reference to the gentlemen's club.
