Pair of Swedish 1880s Painted Wood Benches with Saber Legs and Upholstery

A pair of Swedish painted wood benches from the late 19th century, with saber legs and upholstery. Born in Sweden in the last quarter of the 19th century, each of this pair of painted benches features two graceful out-curving sides, flowing seamlessly into the saber legs on which the piece is raised. Upholstered in a neutral colored fabric, the benches charm our eyes with their clean lines and light finish, typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft colors, aiming at brightening the homes of Sweden during the long winters. Placed anywhere in a home, used as window seats or anchoring a wall, these Swedish 1880s painted benches will be great decorative accents.
