French Louis XVI Style Carved Wood Corbeille Canape Sofa, Late 19th Century

$6,500

About

A simple and elegant carved and ebonized wood and upholstered sofa, known as a "canapé en corbeille", in the Louis XVI style, France, late 19th century. The sofa of generous proportions, with a very slightly curved back and gently sloping arms with scrolled ends that curve ever slightly inwards, as if to hug the sitter, hence the corbeille designation. The carved wood frame simply decorated with minimal details. A single floral blossom adorns the center of the crest rail. The motif is repeated along the front of the seat rail between each of the legs. The sofa is supported on eight tapered legs. The front legs all with a rosette within a square to the top of the leg. The sofa newly padded and upholstered in a very light gray cotton linen, and with an overstuffed seat cushion for maximum comfort.
