I found a terrific antique French table to use as a desk in Christian's garage barn studio upstairs. The table came with an offer to buy these chairs for not much more money. Both came from the South of France and belonged to the owner's grandmother who lived there. The chairs are Art Nouveau in style (1890 - 1910) and the seats are hand caned. They will be used outside with a long table for summer picnics in nice weather.
The table is an earlier kitchen piece with two useful drawers and very sturdy built. It will make a great table and desk for the studio.
