Early Louis XVI Divan

Details Features Contents Reviews (1)


An Early Louis XVI Divan (Large Sofa) made by Jean-Baptiste Claude Sené in circa 1775 for the Grand Cabinet at Château de Saint-Cloud, near Paris. It has arched Serpentine shape back, padded arms and seat covered in close-nailed Beauvais tapestry depicting big flower bouquets, made from the drawings of François Boucher. The decoration is guilloche-carved with foliate finials, above foliate-wrapped arms and curved supports, and a conformingly-carved seatrail, on turned tapering fluted legs headed by rosette paterae and terminating in toupie feet.

The transition period between Louis XV and XVI (1750-1774), the rococo style went out of fashion before King Louis XV's death, inspired by the discovery of ancient Pompeii brought back a return of Greco-Roman style in furniture and architecture. During this transition period, the style slowly transitioned from the charming ornate rococo shapes and just a slight cabriole leg. Louis XVI reign began in 1774 and his queen Marie-Antoinette was a lover of the arts and had much influence over this style. She embraced geometric shapes of replaced rococo curves, chair backs now were oval or rectangular and the classic straight tapering legs resembling a tapering Roman column or quiver, superseded ornate cabriole legs.


The sofa contains 10 high quality, motion capturing bento poses (6 female, 3 male and 1 couples animations). It was set up so two avatars can be seated at the same time.
The animations were set up for the female body of 1.8m of height and 2.1m of height for the male one. If the animation doesn't look right you your avatar, please adjust it in the AVsitter menu.


The matching Armchairs are not included and can be bought separately in my shop.

You can adjust the intensity of the shadows beneath the Sofa by selecting the face of the shadow and lowering the transparency to your liking.
Land impact is 6 for every size below the 1.26m of height.
