Art Nouveau Bench for a Smoking Parlour - 1897. This bench was designed by Hector Guimard one of the leaders of the Art Nouveau movement, illustrated here by the lively design of this asymmetrical bench, one leg of which seems to be a trunk sprouting supple branches that curve like vines.
This original, almost outlandish, piece of furniture, was designed to be placed in the corner of a room, as is shown by the small display case which seems to be suspended in the air beneath a roof-like shelf. Original: Part of my personal collection.
