Early 19th Century Swedish Sofa Bench with Nicely Arched Back on Bracket Legs


A Swedish sofa bench from the early 19th century. This antique Swedish wood sofa bench features a nicely arched back with decorative cut-out at each far corner, high arms, and clean linear lines across the front skirt . This bench is raised on squared and slightly tapered legs with bracket sides, which gives ornamentation to the side profile of this piece. There is a new custom seat cushion of neutral cream colored Belgian linen. This 19th century Swedish sofa bench would work really well in a sun-room, living room or perhaps entry hall.
