Antique Swedish Karl Johan Biedermeier Sofa or Settee

About

Rare antique Swedish Karl Johan settee/sofa in superb restored condition. Hand-crafted of native golden flame birch and reupholstered in black hair cowhide leather, this settee is very comfortable according to modern standards. Furniture made in this style was known as "Karl Johan" beginning around 1818 in Sweden - named after the Swedish king of the era - whereas the term "Biedermeier" originated in Germany and Austria. Now the name "Biedermeier" is used to describe the aesthetics of this clean-lined, elegant form of Northern European decorative arts, regardless of origin. Dimensions: Height 38" Seat Height 21" Arm Height 32" Width 6 ft 10" Depth 22"
