The Bergere Chair

In the 18th century during the Regence and Louis XV periods, furniture took on a more relaxed, comfortable feel in contrast to the rigid, heavy style that was dictated by the earlier Louis XIV period. This change influenced room size to become smaller and more intimate, with more and easily moved upholstery pieces. The Bergere chair is characterized by a deep seat of thick feather cushioning, wide seat width and ornately carved wood arms, painted or gilded for a more opulent look.

Today's Home


When Sigmund and Audrey Lenchner, both Taylor Allderdice graduates, founded Today’s Home, they had a vision to enrich the lives of area families by bringing true quality home furnishings to Western Pennsylvania. Over the decades, Today’s Home has emerged as a true “family business” success story. Through the years, our dedicated employees have managed to grow the company in an age dominated by big box retailing and mega chains.

Now Today’s Home, with its roots firmly planted in the luxury residential furnishings market, has additional operating companies in Designer Furniture Outlet Stores and TH TRADE Commercial. DFO has become the luxury closeout treasure-hunter’s favorite haunt. Our newest addition, TH TRADE, provides ASID level design to our commercial contract customers. We invite you to contact a Today’s Home designer to visit our showroom and see the world of possibilities awaiting you at Today’s Home.
