2021 Sneak Preview – Five Armchairs

In anticipation of the 2021 online San Francisco Fall Show which will go live on InCollect on October 15 at 9:00 am PST/noon EST, we wanted to share some sneak previews of our dealer’s wares. Here are 5 beautiful armchairs, each one wildly different in terms of style, period, and provenance – yet all are one-of-a-kind reminders of our rich past, resonating with history’s silent voices.
