    This 'pouf a cordes' is inspired by the work of A-M-E. Fournier, an upholsterer established in the Boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris in 1850. Amongst the earliest prototypes was that supplied by Fournier to the Château de Compiègne (illustrated in H. Hayward, World Furniture, London, 1965, pl. 928).
