The Story:

Beautifully carved pair of Swedish benches from the Gustavian period, hand-scraped to reveal the original paint surface and newly upholstered in antique linen with nailhead trim, circa 1790. There are carved bell flowers on the seat frame, carved rosettes on the corner posts, and acanthus leaves on tapered legs.

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 beautiful interpretation for Sweden.  The Gustavian style originated in the late 1700’s, inspired by French Neoclassicism, and is still highly sought after today.
