18th Century Swedish Gustavian Period Painted Daybed from Stockholm



An 18th century Swedish Gustavian period daybed made in Stockholm. This beautiful, circa 1790 daybed has been hand-scraped to reveal the original paint surface and newly upholstered in linen with side bolster pillows. Baluster sides with carved lotus leaves. The frame features a carved egg and dart detail with rosettes on the leg posts. This sofa would work well in a front entry, hallway, or sitting room, or as a banquette for a breakfast room.
