Being one item from an entire suite of 11 pieces, this settee will knock your socks off. Adjectives breathtaking and opulent are both clear and precise descriptions of this fine 19th century settee. Showcasing the French Court, this settee is highlighted with intricate carved details and distinguished gilding, too.
This entire suite of furnishings are each in need of some restoration however, we are offering it as shown. My in-house staff can restore this or most anything else to whichever degree you choose. Don't miss this spectacular settee. This stunning set is upholstered in its original Aubusson inspired fabric upholstery. From two feet away, you'd never know it wasn't the real deal but, upon very close examination you realize that this is some of the most extraordinary antique fabric you've ever seen.
"Aubusson" actually refers to a town by the same name in France, the original center of production of tapestry and tapestry-weave carpets and wall embellishments since the mid 17th century. Today, "Aubusson" products are also manufactured outside of the french town. These Aubusson products are among the most highly desired, the most luxurious pieces one can adorn their home with. Decorators and designers often choose Aubusson pillows because they add a rich texture and incredible detail. Colors are often bright and vibrant. Wool yarns and silk yarns are used to create these stunning works of art. These products are usually more expensive due to the amount of intricate work and detail needed to create each piece.
