Swedish Karl Johan Style Sofa Bench from the Mid-19th Century

$4,995

About

A Swedish Karl Johan sofa bench with upholstered seat from the mid-19th century. This antique settee from Sweden features an open back with wooden back rests, nicely decorated with floral and urn ebony colored acccents, framed within widely spaced back splats. Gracefully swooping arms flank each side ending into nicely curled knuckles with ebonized finials positioned prominently in front. The wood skirt is a neat, straight line with diamond and floral motif at center, which is a larger reflection of four other diamonds along the lower back rail, and is raised upon subtle saber feet at front. Bench seat has been newly upholstered in a neutral Belgian linen. This Karl Johan Biedermeier style sofa bench would be a welcoming addition to an entry foyer or wide entry hall, or perhaps a study, or bedroom seating option.
