Set of Four Swedish Neoclassical Style Painted Lindome Side Chairs, circa 1920 MIZZ

A Set of four Swedish Neoclassical style painted wood Lindome chairs from the early 20th century with upholstered seats. This set of four painted wood chairs was born in Lindome, a town from the Halland province of Sweden in the 1920s. Lindome was one of the main centers of Swedish furniture industry in the 18th and 19th century. The Lindome chairs were split into various styles. Our set belongs to the 'Zero Chairs' style. Featuring a delicately out-scrolled pierced back, each chairs is rhythmically adorned with oval pierced medallions placed on an horizontal beam, below an upper medallion carved with a Welsh peacock feather motif, symbol of the English throne, demonstrating a similarity with Sheraton and Hepplewhite styles. A carved swag tops the ensemble. This Neoclassical influence is repeated on the lower section of the chairs, with their carved rosettes and fluted legs adorned with waterleaves. The seats have been recovered in a double welt upholstery. With their light grey old paint and stylish Neoclassical silhouette, this set of four Swedish Lindome chairs will be a wonderful decorative accent in any home. MIZZ
