French Louis XVI Style Carved Wood Canapé with Wraparound Back, circa 1890


A French Louis XVI style intricately carved sofa with wraparound back and fluted legs from the late 19th century. This French canapé features an exquisite wraparound back adorned with a carved molding on the upper rail. The back flows flawlessly into the scrolled arms, decorated with acanthus leaves on the knuckles. These arms flank a seat that comprises a single custom-made cushion. The skirt showcases a twisted ribbon carving accented with rosettes on the knees while the sofa is raised on four fluted tapering legs, whose lines are typical of the Neoclassical Louis XVI era. The graceful lines, combined with a lovely patina demonstrating the age of the piece, will make this French canapé circa 1890 an excellent choice for any room, from a bedroom to a living room.
