Napoleon Chair: Timeless Elegance

February 5, 2016

One of the most popular banquet chairs in the event planning and ballroom industry is the Napoleon chair.

The chair projects elegance. The back begins with an undulating top rail from which turned spindles descend into a more modestly undulating lower rail.

The turned pattern continues down the graceful legs which are braced by equally turned delicate stretchers on all sides. Its fragile appearance belies its solid construction.

The style is seen at countless functions from weddings to high-level diplomatic meetings.

Not Who You’re Thinking

The Napoleon chair was not named after French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. The Napoleon referenced in the style is Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, the former’s nephew, who himself became emperor of France and ruled as Napoleon III.

After declaring himself emperor, Napoleon III set about rebuilding Paris. Architecture, art and furniture making flourished and the designs took the Napoleon name. The designs which came out of the period are also known as Second Empire style.
