Antique rococo and neo classical Georgian seat furniture

Mallett Group

We have an extensive range of English and European chairs ranging from early Georgian chairs with fine needlework coverings from as early as 1700 to important chairs of the 20th century.

Mallett specialises in dining chairs, wing armchairs, hall chairs, and stools. Many of our chairs are connected with some of the most important furniture makers in history with designs by Thomas Chippendale and John Linnell. The history of design and adoption of external influences such as chinoiserie, the rococo, and neo-classicism, are traced throughout the Mallett collections and balanced with the continental furniture collection.

Mallett's collection of antique seat furniture

At Mallett, our range of furniture includes items from the 18th and 19th century, allowing you to select Rococo and neoclassical antique seat furniture, as well as later Victorian and 20th century antique seat furniture.

Many of these rare items are upholstered in intricate period needlework coverings with delicate floral and classical designs, while others have been carefully upholstered in fine traditional hand woven silk fabric or leather.

The appearance of wooden antique seat furniture varies widely, depending on the age, style and history of the piece in question.

Some items may have frames and legs that were expertly turned, while others have been carved with elaborate motifs. Most antique seat furniture includes a combination of both woodworking techniques, providing a interesting and varied addition to your collection.

In many cases, antique seat furniture may be decorated with paint or gilt or a combination or both 'parcel gilt', while other items will be finished with French polish and bees wax, maintaining the natural beauty of the wood. Painted or gilt antique seating is typically constructed with Beech wood, whilst polished and waxed chairs typically have mahogany, Satinwood or Rosewood frames.
