A is for Acanthus- A stylized leaf pattern inspired by the acanthus plant and used as ornamentation on molding, furniture, and decorative objects. Acanthus ornamentation gives it a classical look.
B is for Bergere. The French Bergere chair is considered an upholstered armchair with closed, upholstered or caned sides. The elegant scale and shape of a Bergere chair tends to fit in with just about any look depending on the fabric. With a small check pattern, it can look country French. With a silk brocade, it can fit right into renovated palace, and in a plain white…it goes contemporary.
