For the first time, people expected furniture to be comfortable as well as beautiful, and fixed upholstery was one of the great inventions of this period. The seats and backs of chairs were padded and leather or tapestry was secured to the chair's wooden frame. The great majority of extant examples have, however, knobbed, baluster, or spirally turned legs joined with an H-form stretcher, with an extra stretcher joining the front legs above, which both strengthens and decorates at the same time.

Louis XIII style furniture, essentially rectilinear in form, is rather simple and severe, as may be seen in the typical Louis XIII chair of square pattern, with an upholstered seat and back panel secured to the frame with decorative gilt or silvered nails. Info source: www.artquid.com

Louis XIII furniture featured massive, solid construction with geometric carving. Furniture design was more opulent with cherubs, scrolls, fruit and flowers as recurring decorative themes. Info source: www.jeanmarcfray.com
