In 1771, the future king of Sweden, Gustav III, was inspired by the Neoclassical style of Louis XVI's furniture at Versailles. Gustav created a more restrained, less gaudy variant of the French style, now known as Gustavian furniture. This furniture was first meant only for palaces but quickly gained popularity outside of royalty. The Traditional Settee - Ivory is our interpretation of this famous, classic style. The spring and hand applied webbing on this piece gives the seat more support and comfort than those from the 1700s, though!
