19th Century Swedish Gustavian Sofa

THE STORY: 

A Swedish banquette sofa hand-scraped to original chalky white Gustavian paint with traces of old gilt from the 19th century. The upholstery fabric is a crisp white Belgian linen. A very beautiful and sturdy piece. The arm height is 28".  Circa 1880.

The Gustavian style, named after King Gustav III of Sweden, is a restrained interpretation of the French Louis XV and Louis XVI style. King Gustav III was enamored with the neoclassical style and therefore created his own interpretation for Sweden.
