Fantasy furniture Exotic bird chairs with carved wings in flight, lion’s head arm rests carved into dining chairs , shell shaped stools and little carved animals adorning the corners of bookcases and tables. Fantasy furniture describes the unusual, the whimsical and dreamlike designed furniture produced in the 19th and 20th centuries. The exquisite designs were as limitless as the imagination of the maker Highly collectible and sort after for their creative form and magical symbolism. We have chosen a few of our favourites from Artfour’s collection including this Italian carved mythological bird chair.
