A little about Savonarola Chairs: The term Savonarola Chair is used to designate a chair fashioned after those favored by residents of 16th century Venice. The chairs usually have a curved, crossing or “X” base instead of legs and feature a deeply contoured seat. They are often heavily adorned with inlay or intricate carvings. The name itself comes from Girolamo Savonarola, an Italian friar who defied the Church with his reform ideas and was ultimately executed for his efforts in 1498. The chairs are also sometimes referred to as “Dante” chairs or curule chairs. This type of chair was previously used extensively by the Romans and was known as the “sella curule.”
