Woven Rattan “Tête-à-tête” Chair.  “Tête-à-tête” literally means “head-to-head” in French, and the seating creation allows just that. Its S-shaped, serpentine form encourages two people to face each other and engage in conversation, yet still be visually tied to their surroundings. Created in the 19th century, the tête-à-tête is known by many names, including gossip’s chair, vis-à-vis and indiscret (so-named to thwart indiscreet eavesdroppers.) In addition to allowing conversation, it tradtionally allowed courting couples to make eyes at each other without actually touching. This would need cushions.
