Wednesday Classics, Fauteuil or Bergere

Fauteuil, a term not often used, refers to a French chair with under armrest open.  It usually has a patting on the armrest for comfort and it was mostly used in England where comfort first became more important than aesthetics compared to France. Below, a few modern versions of Fauteuils.
 Miles Redd upholstered this handsome Fauteuil in bright amethyst.
While a Bergere is enclosed under arm with patting all around it, there is almost always wood exposed, which can be seen either on the bottom frame and/or on the side front of the armrest.   They were mostly used in France and usually gilded back in the Early Neoclassical period.  Very distinct chairs from each other and very taste and style specific, what's your favorite?
 Jacques Grange kept this room very quintessentially French by using this gorgeous Bergere.
 Alessandra Branca's bright red Bergere.
 Modern and fun stripes cover a very classic bergere.
