Moroccan Leather Armchairs Maison Lalande

A very fine pair of late 19th Century French Empire style mahogany library bergeres, gilt bronze mounted retaining the original Moroccan leather upholstery, attributed to Maison Lalande. French circa 1890-1900. The curved top-rails with patera-cast mounts and anthemion foliate strapwork crests above padded leather scoop backs with raised padded arm rests finishing with circular gilt bronze pateras over sphinx head terminals, enclosing a bow fronted loose feather cushion seat, raised on square tapering legs to the front terminating on gilt bronze paw feet.

These very stylish armchairs, much inspired by Jacob-Desmalter’s work of the early 19th century, remarkably retain their original Moroccan leather upholstery which is in extremely good condition having been fully nourished and waxed. The bronze work is of the finest quality retaining most of its original gilt.
To the underside they are numerically stamped and given the quality and design of the armchairs we feel they are from the workshop of Maison Lalande, Devouge et Colosiez. A very similar pair in a suite which is marked can be found on 1stdibs.

Maison Lalande was founded in 1852 and based 57, rue de Charenton.
It was later taken over by the son around 1860, Lalande Fils kept the same address. He was awarded a bronze medal at the 1878 Exposition Universelle in Paris. In 1894 the name changed to Maison Lalande Devouge & Colosiez and moved down the road to 34, rue de Charenton, Paris.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
