Not a duplicate post from yesterday! We found a fascinating #designhistory of the Charles Percier swan-armed chair designed for Joséphine and wanted to share... •• A plate in the 1812 book, “Recueil de decorations intérieures” (Collection of Interior Decorations) shows Percier’s sketch of the chair design along with notations in his hand to Jacob-Frères regarding the fabrication and upholstery. The original chairs, which include the gold pearl necklace, red velvet upholstery and embroidered silk and gold details, inspired many others, including Jacob-Desmalter and Maison Jansen. •• The silver gilt versionis an 1805 design by Jacob-Desmalter for the Salon d’Argent of the Elysée Palace. •• More than a century later, Lord and Lady Louis Mountbatten purchased four Jansen swan-armed chairs, three of which are shown in the drawing room of their 1930s London penthouse. You can see some of the changes Jansen made—the back is pitched a bit differently and the volute that extends from the frame in the original design is scaled up and integrated into the base of the swan. There’s also no space between the swan’s wing and the frame in the Jansen version. •• These chairs ended up with David Hicks, who married to Lady Pamela Mountbatten chairs, who reupholstered them over the years. •• In 2017, the chairs could be seen in a photo from Architectural Digest, part of a feature on India Hicks, David’s daughter and the Mountbatten’s granddaughter, installed at her Oxfordshire home. •• So the originals, made for an Empress, were reinterpreted by one design legend, then used and admired by another. Note: The research on Jansen/Montbatten/Hicks chairs came from adaesthete—a fantastic account to follow! •• 📸: via chateaumalmaison, metmuseum, bardgradcenter, adaesthete, archdigest •• #decortours #everydayextraordinary #designadventures #designdiscovery #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #paris #jetaimeparis #dtparis #malmaison #chateaumalmaison #châteaudemalmaison #empirestyle #frenchempire #josephine #napoleon #Napoléon #Joséphine #swans #percier #salledelafrise #charlespercier #swanchair

先週末の盛りだくさんはあらためてまとめるとして😅、引き続きのご近所 #アジング 😊 アジの動きを感じようと「ジグ単で」ですがとにかく広く探ろうと。 この日は当初、流れのあるところの上層に群れが分布していました。 それが、潮の当たりが変わって全体に通るようになった瞬間、潮上の明暗、中層から下でのバイトが出始め、その後はそこにアジがどんどん密集して来ているような感覚になるくらいの連発劇に。 アジの主たる目的はその場所!的な😄 もう大変😊 #宵姫天 #S48AL -solidでアタリも潮も、いろんな微妙な変化をたくさん楽しみましたよ✨ #がまかつ #LUXXE #SUNLINE #ArukazikJapan #SWANS
