House of Cards: Season 2

In season four of House of Cards, Frank Underwood strolls through the White House reflecting on the time he, and the previous president, sat in elegant chairs and had a nice chat. 

Don't worry, Frank.  I remember.  I could never forget about those chairs.  

Good lookin' chairs

I started watching Ray Donavan, and I am hooked.  If you put it on mute, the show would just be tough guys visiting Los Angeles mansions.  

I grabbed this picture because the chairs are stunning.  They are similar to chairs I have seen in the past, but these feel more relaxed.  The stuffing is more generous, and the backs are at a semi-reclined angle.

In the second season of House of Cards, Frank Underwood and The President stroll the halls of the White House, and sit down for a brief chat.  

The chairs they sit in are remarkable.  The furniture in the White House is consistently stately and unsurprising, but these chairs have an unexpected Art Nouveau quality.  They arms of the chair connect to the back in a smooth loop.  The dark wood and caning are classic, and the added organic quality take these chairs to the next level.

If anyone has more information about them, I'm all ears.
