The boudoir chair is certainly not a new invention, far from it, these chairs were originally designed to be somewhere for a lady to sit during private meetings and conversations in the boudoir itself. The boudoir is a French terms to describe a lady’s private sitting room or bedroom. It was often placed between the dining room and the main bedroom. The term boudoir has often carried a somewhat salacious undertone with it, this was certainly helped along by a certain Marquis de Sade and his book “Philosophy in the Bedroom”. These days the terms and, indeed, the furniture is more synonymous with style, elegance and chic decadence than scandal in the 1700s!
Boudoir Chair Design and Style
The Boudoir chair was originally designed to be smaller than other types of chair to fit into a room that wasn’t big enough for larger dining style seating. In terms of design a boudoir chair tends to be of a more ornate style with a Renaissance and very French feel. These chairs were often made lower than normal chairs and were designed with no arms. A rounded seat and low back is a common theme in boudoir chairs as is an upholstered seat. Boudoir chairs are not just for the more ornate style room though, bold and heavy boudoir chairs are popular for a stronger and bolder room. The very definition of a boudoir chair is a loose one so there is plenty of room for innovation and unique design ideas including colours and fabrics.
