Carefully preserved in the Winterthur Library collection of rare books is Pierre de la Mésangère’s Collection de Meubles et Objets de Goût, published in Paris between 1801 and 1831. The series includes more than 700 hand-colored
engravings of furniture, carriages, draperies, and other decorative objects. Mésangère’s publication was influential in popularizing the designs of Napoleon’s decorators, Percier and Fontaine.
Hickory Chair Company's artists have adapted a design from Collection de Meubles et Objets de Goût to create the 21st-century lounge chair. The result is a piece of furniture that is certain to become an important part of today’s living environments that emphasize unparalleled quality and beauty.
