Pair of Swedish Gustavian Style 1880s Painted Side Tables with Carved Rosettes

A pair of Swedish Gustavian Style painted wood side tables from the late 19th century, with carved rosettes, beaded motifs and tapered legs. Born in Sweden in the last quarter of the 19th century, each of this pair of side tables features a rectangular top, sitting above an elegant apron, carved with rosettes on the knees and accented with petite beads on the trim. Each table is raised on four elegant tapered legs, whose clean lines complement the general linearity of the piece beautifully. The tables are painted in a light color typical of the Scandinavian taste for soft palettes, aiming at brightening the homes of Sweden during the long, dark winters. With their pure silhouettes and understated décor, these Swedish Gustavian style side tables circa 1880 will bring a graceful presence to any living room or foyer.
