Pair of Andre Groult Gold Leaf Bergeres, Selected by Jay Spectre

Pair of Andre Groult Gold Leaf Bergeres, Selected by Jay Spectre

Item Description:

"The gentle curves of Groult's designs display a whimsical attitude and evoke the human figure; the sensual outlines mirror the female body and echo figures from surrealist sculptures and paintings." - Artsy.net

The bergeres were photographed for two of Geoffrey Bradfield's books. A pair of throw pillows in matching upholstery is included. This lot is part of a collection from a Louisville, Kentucky residence decorated by Jay Spectre. The award-winning interior and furniture designer was known for his luxurious pieces influenced by Art Deco, Asian and African themes. This is evident in the pieces he selected here, some of which still bear his gallery label.
