Chairs of the Czars - Catherine Palace

I just returned from a GREAT trip to Russia which includes stops in both St. Petersburg and Moscow.  Near St. Petersburg, we visited the Catherine Palace (named for second wife of Peter the Great).  The palace is very ornate and beautifully preserved.  It is located in Czar's Village (now known as Pushkin Village).

 I took photos of some of the chairs - hoping for inspiration.  I find the chairs to be a little ornate (too much gold gilding) but beautiful!  Needless to say, I was not given the opportunity to try them out!
