Swedish Gustavian Style 1880s Painted Linen Cabinet with Carved Diamond Motifs

A Swedish Gustavian style painted wood linen cabinet from the late 19th century, with carved dentil molding and reeded diamond motifs. Created in Sweden during the last quarter of the 19th century, this painted wood cabinet features a curving cornice sitting above a carved dentil molding. Two tall doors, adorned with reeded diamonds on two levels, make up the façade and open to reveal multiple inner shelves ideal to store linens and blankets. Raised on four short tapered feet, the cabinet is painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes. With its clean lines and subtle décor, this Gustavian style Swedish linen cabinet circa 1880 will bring a touch of Classicism to any bedroom or living room.
