Fauteuil Chair: Pronounced as 'Foe-toy', This chair has a literal meaning as an armchair. This uniquely designed upholstered armchair was born in the late 1600 BC and got to taste the fame in the early 18th Century. With its use by the esteemed Emperor Louis XIV, this chair got more modified with the passage of time. This ornate design was supposedly used by mostly the men in the society. Therefore, another version of this prestigious chair, named Fauteuil à la Reine, was invented only for the use of Queen.
What makes these chairs so popular - aside from the fact that they're rare - is because of the attention given to the structure and hand carving designs to each piece. It's rarely seen that contemporary-designed chairs would be covered from front, back, and sides with so detailed and elaborate wood carvings. These chairs are not created from ordinary wood materials, but these use high-quality hardwood timber materials - Mahogany, Oak, Elmwood, and many more. That would conveniently explain why these chairs are so durable and heavy. During the Renaissance period, these are also a great symbol of wealth and authority.
