La Marquise, An II (Roche Bobois): Irony or amnesia?


What were they thinking? A lovely armchair it is, but why incur the wrath of fate by calling it a “Marquise, l’An II.” Did Roche Bobois Furniture forget that it was not such a good thing to be an aristocrat in 1794? Or is this an ironic reference to the survivors? (And why are the book titles in the background all so fuzzy!? We want to know what that marquise was reading.)
