You just walked the Rue Faubourg and are about to descend into the Louvre. Nows the time to make a pit stop in a reputable brasserie, maybe the Bofinger near the Opera? You are counting on a delicious café, maybe a small liqueur but you can only hope youll find an empty barstool to rest your weary feet. Elbow on the bar rail, comfortably parked, with feet resting on the ring encircling the stool legs The design of our tall brasserie accessory goes back to the late 19th C. when bentwood furniture was developed in Vienna and exported across Europe and the rest of the world. Timeless in style and sturdy in construction, many have survived ages. And ours will follow the same tradition, when handled with love and care.
