A Swedish Gustavian Style painted wood bench with newly upholstered seat from the late 19th century. This Swedish backless bench features a long rectangular seat that has been recovered in a double welt upholstery. The ensemble is raised on six exquisite fluted legs raised on tall tapered feet and adorned with carved rosettes on the knees on all sides, showing the influence the Louis XVI period had on the Gustavian Style. We are here in the presence of pure elegance, with an understated décor and clean lines. The bench is painted in a light grey color, typical of the pastel palette so dear to the Scandinavian taste. Placed anywhere in a home, this Swedish 1890s backless bench would adorn any living room, kitchen or bedroom beautifully.
