Tapered, with an oval back, the Louis XVI chair was chosen by Christian Dior to accommodate his guests against an incomparable background, which he himself describes in his memoirs as “sober, simple, but above all classic and exquisitely Parisian”. The story begins with the collaboration of the stylist-tailor with Victor Grandpierre, first a photographer and then a decorator; together they produced the famous neoclassical interiors in gray and white that has become the code of the Dior world.
