Bethlehem Pa Apartments – Bergere Style Chairs

Any room in a Bethlehem Pa apartment can use great design choices and one of my favorite chairs is the French Bergere style chair. I have a gorgeous one in our bedroom, with matching ottoman, in a pale woven tapestry with light wood. It is simply scrumptious to sit in and read with its down-filled cushions. Here are some of my favorite finds online that would be great in any Bethlehem Pa apartment and bit of Bergere history.  Image above is an antique reproduction of a French Louis XV bergere via Haqure.

Color choices for a Bergere chair for your Bethlehem Pa apartment are important. Of course I couldn’t resist this chartreuse-colored Fauteuil Bergere style via Deco en Vogue.

Built for royalty, the French Bergere Chair was originally designed in the early 1700s, inspired by Louis XIV of France. These overstuffed elegantly built, comfortable chairs were used in sitting rooms and bedrooms, and were often moved about the mansions for party use. The grand comfort and beautiful presentation of these chairs and ottomans have endured the centuries in interior furniture design and are still very popular. Refurbished and classic reproductions are less expensive than the original antiques of course. Above is the traditional beige chair and ottoman by Hickory White.

In contrast, this black Fauteuil Bergere Louis XV reproduction is a gorgeous choice with a more daring Bethlehem apartments living space.

My Bergere and ottoman was made by Fairfield Chair Company in North Carolina. It cost around $1500 twenty years ago when we bought it. Here is a gorgeous design for your Bethlehem apartment, Louisa Bergere Chair from Ballard Designs. $600
