Antique 2nd Empire Period Day Bed

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An intriguing French innovation, the day bed could be placed at the center of any room and serve during the day as a comfortable sofa or canape, and provide sleeping accommodations at night if the need arose. This example, rendered from exotic and highly desirable imported mahogany, features Empire motifs resurrected by Napoleon III to honor his uncle, with decided ancient Egyptian style origins. In this case, the ornamentation is not cast bronze, but hand-carved and gilded, making this a truly exceptional find!
As of this writing, the matching armbench, pair of armchairs and pair of chairs from the original salon set are available!
