Intricate carved details and distinguished gilding add to this 19th c French settee and still in it's original Aubusson style fabric. From two feet away, you'd never know it wasn't the real deal but, upon very close examination you realize that this is some of the most extraordinary antique fabric you've ever seen. "Aubusson" actually refers to a town by the same name in France, the original center of production of tapestry and tapestry-weave carpets and wall embellishments since the mid 17th century. Today, "Aubusson" products are also manufactured outside of the french town. These Aubusson products are among the most highly desired, the most luxurious pieces one can adorn their home with. Decorators and designers often choose Aubusson pillows because they add a rich texture and incredible detail. Colors are often bright and vibrant. Wool yarns and silk yarns are used to create these stunning works of art. These products are usually more expensive due to the amount of intricate work and detail needed to create each piece.
