Sofa, rococo

Sweden, 1760–1770s.

Carved wood.

88,5 cm x 188,0 cm x 61,0 cm.

Comfortably padded, practical sofas were an essential part of the Rococo décor ideology. The most common style of sofa had a bench-like seat, a separate back, and a padded mattress and cushions.

The ends of this sofa are abundantly decorated with sculpted leaves, flowers and C-curves. The colouring follows the original.
