This living room furniture set, consisting of two armchairs and a sofa, was made in the late 19thcentury. Its realization is attributed to the Maison des Bambous by Perret and Vibert
Each back of seat, carved and openworked, of Far Eastern influence, is topped by a dragon and enriched by a panel decorated with butterflies and flowers in mother-of-pearl marquetry. The armrests are carved with dragon heads. Each seat rests on four claw feet connected by a stretcher with openwork decoration.
Perret and Vibert's Maison des Bambous was set up in 1872 at number 33 rue du Quatre-Septembre. Specialised in the production of small furniture and seats made out of bamboo and wicker, they quickly turned towards the production of Japanese and Chinese inspired carved wood furniture. Around 1910, they opened a branch at 170, boulevard Haussmann and kept it open until 1994, the year that Maison des Bambous permanently closed.
