This graceful Swedish Gustavian 18th Century Armchair has a simplicity at first glance but on looking closer there is so much more intrinsic beauty to it. It has a pleasing worn patina that reflects use by multiple generations and the imagination could be endless when reflecting on European history.   It has an upholstered back and seat currently with a natural jute finish ready to be re-upholstered; this can be carried out in-house at an additional cost using client's own fabric.  
The frame is well made and has the original scraped back paint showing the typical Gustavian delicate blue/grey.  It has serpentine arms with a padded upholstery area; the front legs are rounded and turned with carved reeded accents including a floral motif to the top. The back legs are straight, at an angle, and also have carved reeded accents. There is a further intricate carved motif of a continuous infinity loop around the upholstered areas of the seat and the back.
