Louis XV Giltwood Sofa
Louis XV sofa ‘à La Turque’ in carved and gilt beechwood and upholstery. French, 19th century…
Impressive, expressive, and luxurious come to mind in describing this piece. The ample frame has strong lines, with its undulating back and dramatically curved sides. The molding is further accentuated by the carved decoration - curling fronds and floral motifs – which is found all over. A wide and deep seat comes with ample cushions and pillows. Standing on short 6 curved legs.
Newly covered in a stunning Louis XV Brocatelle from Edmond Petit, with a floral and foliage pattern in soft blue against a warm gold ground.
Of Louis XV style, French, mid 19th century, circa 1870.
In excellent restored condition. Woodwork and joints solid. Interior (underneath) seat base structure re-built. Some wear and small losses as to be expected for age. New upholstery and fabric.
Easily dis-assembled for transport.
The form, decoration, and fabric of this piece combine to present a pure expression of the Louis XV style. A stunning and elegant piece.
