French 18th Century Louis XV Period Walnut Canapé from Lyon with Wraparound Back

$11,95033% Off


A French 18th century Louis XV period walnut wraparound sofa from Lyon, with upholstery and cabriole legs. Born in the Rhône Valley during the 18th century, this exquisite canapé features a wraparound back, accented on its upper rail with two delicate hand-carved roses. The sinuous lines of the crest flow seamlessly into the upholstered wrapping arms that provide a deeper sense of privacy to the sitter. Raised on eight cabriole legs accented with carved rosettes, the sofa is upholstered in a double welt fabric whose neutral tones compliment the walnut patina beautifully. With its graceful Louis XV lines and subtle décor, this French lyonnais 18th century canapé will bring an elegant presence to any living room or bedroom. Note: Fabric is not in brand new condition. Some wear from use in showroom.
