Beautiful Victorian French style Walnut Bergere armchairs. These comfortable upholstered wing arm chairs with exposed wood frame have closed arms and concave back with a cabriole leg are in the form of Louis XV. The chairs are very nice quality heavy and crisply carved and we believe they are American in origin. The frames are crisply carved throughout with C scroll acanthus foliage flowers & shell cresting. The arms are acanthus carved scroll roll front. The seat front is serpentine and the apron with shell carved crest and the cabriole leg with shell scroll & acanthus carved knee. The original sprung seats are in very good condition and the vintage cut velvet fabric is acceptable. The frames are in excellent condition and may have been re finished some time ago. We have the matching tea table and set of four dining chairs available

Tammy & Dennis, First off, let me thank you for storing the furniture for as long as you did. Everything that was included (keys and hardware) or added in ( like the extra cushion fabric) was remembered, even if I had long forgotten it. Meeting drew was all I needed to do. I now understand the mysteries of my furniture's journey. I may not trust him with anything else, but I do trust him with antique furniture delivery, which is all you need to worry about. A bit crazy? Perhaps, but I liked him anyway. What about the furniture you ask? It's just awesome! To fill up a room with furniture that I was seeing for the first time was a bit overwhelming to say the least. A kid in an oak candy store. The pieces vary from very nice to "are you freaking kidding me". Since the stuff is at a second home, it will take me a while to get over my excitement. Poor me. We beat the snow! Happy Holidays and thanks again. KurtBaldwin New York
Many, many thanks for your seamless delivery of my rocking chair. It is exactly as Antiques by Design described it.

FABULOUS antique chest EXACTLY as described...SUPERB service and shipping advice
Excellent place to shop

Hi Tammy and Dennis Thanks so much again for bringing our table to Edmonton. We have it set up and it looks very nice. Over the weekend we had company and had 11 people sitting comfortably around the table! I hope your time at the Wild Rose show was successful. We hope to come to your Calgary show in August Lorna & John Stephen
Just wanted to let you know that Gary just delivered the settle and I love it!!! Thanks so much

The quarter sawn oak Morris chair arrived yesterday with zero damage in shipping. I was blown away by the obvious "over the top" care that was taken in preparing the chair for shipping across country! I unpacked it immediately and placed it in my home, it's beautiful to look at and comfortable to sit in. I am a happy repeat customer who I know will be making additional purchases in the future.

Tammy, We received our dining table and couldn't be any happier! It is beautiful. Delivered safe & sound. Thank you so much. Debbi & BruceMenifee California
March 20, 2014 No one should have the slightest qualm about buying antiques sight-unseen from Antiques by Design. The table was in exceptional condition and exactly how you described it. You packaged it extremely well and so there was no problem shipping it so far. I wouldn't hesitate to buy more pieces from you based on your photos and your description. What a pleasure to find an antique dealer who takes such care with their furniture ... and their customers! Thanks so much!

Hi Tammy, Everything worked out well in the end. I had a phone call yesterday from the delivering company to confirm the time and the bench was delivered safely today. The deliverers were very courteous and most helpful and I did not have to move a finger to have the bench unloaded from the truck and brought into the house. The bench is absolutely adorable - I like the size and that one can be hidden while sitting in it. A lovely piece which would fit in so well into my arts and crafts house. I would like to thank you very much for all your help through the process and efficiency in dealing with the delivery matters. Thank you also for taking good care of the bench during my travels, your cooperation and good spirit were most valuable and made this purchase a most enjoyable experience. Kind regards,

Hi Just wanted to let you know that we received the settee in perfect condition. It is exactly what I expected and fits perfectly in my front entrance. I did not receive the furniture product that we discussed when I purchased the settee. I have forgotten the name of the product and would like to obtain some in the future to care for my antiques. Thanks SherryRegina Saskatchewan

Hi Tammy and Dennis, I wanted to let you know that the 2 chairs and settle arrived safe and sound on Thursday. They are all absolutely stunning. I have already fallen asleep twice in the rocker! Thanks so much Regards, Gary and KarenRose Bay Nova Scotia
We bought a table from Dennis in late 2010. About a year later, my daughter caused some damage to the table. Dennis thought she might have exacerbated a hairline crack. Dennis drove close to two hours to our house, examined the table, took it to a craftsman to be repaired, and paid for the repair himself. That is a level of service that one rarely sees these days. It is a delight to deal with someone who looks after the customer. I would not hesitate to recommend Antiques by Design.

Hi Tammy, The sideboard arrived Sunday on schedule. Thank you very much....it was worth the wait. It is absolutely amazing and not a scratch ...the best bonus is the "KEY" to this old piece so many times they are lost. Many thanks to Alfred and his helper a true professional. I thank you again for your business and service. I will be viewing your web site for more beautiful pieces and telling my friends of the wonderful services you and Dennis provide

Hi Tammy, Yes, I am pleased with the two bookcases in my library! I had the bookcases in my house that same evening. The oak wood blends in nicely with the existing bookcase and bureau in the room. I am glad to have done business with you folks. You operate your business in a professional manner. I especially liked the regular open communication! Keep up the good work. Who knows I may see other furniture on your website and be calling on you again. Best Regards, KevinDuncan BC
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service we received during the recent purchase and delivery of our dining table- everything went without a hitch. Your website is one of the best, but after visiting your store I can honestly say that all of the furniture is even more spectacular in reality than in the pictures. We'll be back..
