The Story:

An almost identical pair of 19th century Swedish sofa benches in the Gustavian style, newly upholstered in linen. See full dimensions below.  These sofas came from a farmhouse in Svärdsjö in Dalarna province and were most likely made for two different areas in the house.  Arrow decor is found on the back and seat frame, corner posts, legs, and finals.  The arrow has been the symbol for Dalarna since the Middle Ages.

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.
