Arras Furniture first emerged around 1840 when one of three companies manufacturing metal products in the town of Arras, Grassin-Baledans, began to specialise in garden furniture and started producing artistic ironwork. With welding not used at the time, all authentic Arras pieces are entirely hand forged and riveted, using metal tubing and flat metal.
The furniture was intended for the high-end market at a time when the privileged classes were discovering the benefits of outdoor living, and the pieces were made to the highest quality and durability, along with their striking and distinctive appearance, made Arras pieces incredibly fashionable. Anyone wishing to date an Arras piece must look at the feet first. Originally embellished with lion paws, after 1900 this changed to horse hooves.
