About

18th century Swedish Gustavian period daybed - hall bench circa 1790 features tailored, neoclassical lines that are definitive of the era, with slat backs surrounding the seating area, and charming rustic carved motifs around the top of the gallery rail and all across the apron. Such daybeds were popular for sofas during the day, and ideal for accommodating unexpected guests for an evening's stay. Wonderful distressed painted finish adds a splendidly casual shabby chic effect. An interesting design detail is the seat lifts up trunk-like to reveal a nice storage space concealed under the upholstery, circa 1770s. Measures: 35 H x 72 W x 23.5 D; seat 17 H.
