At left and at right are arm chairs, seen from the front. The first is with a cushioned seat, the back with an escutcheon inside, with scrolls above it, as an outer frame. The next chair is similar to the first, with a roll-shaped, S-curved back. Above, at center, is an armchair with a curved back, like that of a mirror frame. To the left, above, is another armchair, similar to the previous.
