The creations of the French artist Michel Haillard are baroque and opulent, sometimes also horribly grotesque and fascinating. Haillard habitually uses traditional, often baroque and classical forms and transforms them into fantastic and sometimes quirky pieces of furniture that will certainly stand out in any living room.
The chair measures 105.5 x 71 x 84 cm and is in good condition, showing some wear and typical signs of age to the natural materials.
