What Style are These Chairs & Sofa?

Q: I discovered this neat couch and its two matching chairs in a brocante here in Nice, France this weekend. I could hardly believe my luck; they were sold as a set for only €50! My question is, does anyone know what style this is? I've seen chairs with curved wooden armrests like these, but never "doubled" with an upholstered arm beneath them. The pieces evoke mid century and Danish modern for me, but not quite — they may be from a later period?…

…The legs are wood as well, and covered in the same velvet as the couch and chairs (darker because they had been hidden from light by a gold-brown fringe until I took it off). I'm pretty sure the brown velvet is a recent addition, since it's in perfect condition on all three pieces. The cushions are mine. (Please excuse the state of the wall behind the chairs! I'm in the process of scraping off textured paint in order to redo the area.)

Many thanks!
