Porters Chairs Fit for a King at Juliettes Interiors
A porter’s chair. The ultimate in glamour, with pride of place in the most sophisticated living room or hall — but you may be surprised to know that the origins of this most upmarket of armchairs are rather more humble. Known in French as a guérite, meaning ‘sentry’, this gives a clue.
Porters’ chairs were designed for the unfortunate member of staff in a large house whose job was to sit by the front doors, often in a damp and chilly hallway, keeping watch and making sure that only the right people came in. The chair’s high back and enclosed sides protected the hall porter from wind and weather, while the porter protected the household.
These days, a porter’s chair is distinguished by its very high back and high end finish. Upholstered in the finest leathers, velvets and fabrics, any of the porters’ chairs at Juliette’s Interiors would create a striking focal point in any room. Button backs, beautiful curved wings or audacious Art Deco styling; sleek modern lines and traditional designs, our extensive range of outstanding chairs has choices to complement every interior. All items are customisable, allowing you to choose the perfect colours and finishes to enhance your own individual style.
From its days as a robust and purely functional piece of furniture, the porter’s chair has come of age. A chair originally designed for the staff is now fit for a king.
