La Croix Chaisier. These rush-woven seated chairs are made the old-fashioned way in a little town near Avignon in Southern France. We buy these beautiful French chairs directly from the manufacturer, Lacroix Chaisier. Family owned since 1856, Lacroix Chaisier is now in the fifth generation of the Lacroix family of master craftsmen. Keeping with the time-tested tradition, the Lacroix craftsmen use the strong rush reeds that grow along the Rhone River and beautiful French wood to create this exquisite furniture. The chairs come in many styles and finishes and all are made with sturdy woven rush seats. We recommend the cherry varnish finish for cold or dry climates in the US. Also available in antiqued paint finishes, distressed finish or raw unfinished wood. Expect 12-16 weeks for special orders.
