A pair of Swedish Gustavian style painted wood nightstands from the late 19th century, with single drawer over door. Created in Sweden during the last quarter of the 19th century, each of this pair of Gustavian style bedside tables features a rectangular top with canted corners in the front, sitting above a single drawer fitted with a simple brass pull. The façade, flanked with fluted and canted side posts topped with rosettes, is completed by a door showcasing a carved panel, opening to reveal inner shelves offering convenient storage space. Painted in a soft color typical of the Scandinavian taste for light palettes, the nightstands are each raised on four short tapered feet angled in the front. With their clean lines and subtle décor, this pair of Swedish Gustavian style painted bedside tables circa 1880 will bring a touch of Classicism to any home, particularly placed in a bedroom.
