Antique Victorian Conversational Lovebird Chair

Mahogany conversation seat with outstanding pink upholstery with overstuffed rests, standing on turned legs with brass castors, in excellent condition.

Conceived in 19th century France, the basic setup consists of two seats conjoined in a serpentine shape, allowing the sitters to discreetly have a conversation. Without a table creating distance between them, they’re able to speak more intimately and quietly, while also preventing too much physical contact by virtue of a shared armrest cleverly doubling as an elegant barrier of sorts.

The two-way and three-way chairs were wildly popular during France’s Second Empire where they first originated. The two-seater was known as “le confidant“, indicating that it was intended for confidential conversations; between political confidants.
