Pair of Swedish Neoclassical Style Klismos Painted and Carved Side Chairs

A pair of Swedish neoclassical style painted wood Klismos side chairs from the 20th century, with carved décor, rosettes, saber legs, low seats and simple black upholstery. Created in Sweden during the 20th century, this pair of Klismos chairs finds its inspiration in 5th century Greece. Each chair features a concave back perfectly cradling the human body, carved and upholstered with a basic black fabric in fair condition. This back is flowing into the hind legs in a graceful movement. The low seat (16.5" high) is upholstered with the same fabric and is resting on a carved apron also accented with delicate rosettes. The chair is raised on four saber legs with fluted accentuation. The ensemble is painted in a soft color typical of the Swedish taste for light palettes aiming at brightening the rooms during the long and dark Scandinavian winters. With their elegant lines and delicately carved décor, this pair of Swedish Neoclassical style Klismos chairs from the 20th century will make for a wonderful addition to any home, placed in a living room, bedroom or foyer.
