Today’s sofas don’t evoke too much by the way of romance, sensuality and curvy femininity as do Victorian era pieces. While I love a good, boxy modern piece, there is nothing today that compares to the sexiness and styling of the Victorian period. It was as if they created furniture, representative of a real woman’s figure, underneath all of her finery.
When I see this piece, I imagine an artist painting his lover outstretched by candlelight. I also think it would be a superb piece to reupholster in a super funky and bold patterned fabric (or many different fabrics) to give it an ultra Bohem flavor!
From the seller iFoundYou
“This is a very handsome Victorian Empire, double scroll end sofa. The wood is mahogany and it is upholstered in a yellow stripe with a laurel wreath motif. There are two round bolster cushions, one at each end. This type of sofa dates 1810 – 1830 and as was typical, features large hand carved paws for feet with carved wings.”
$950. What a bargain!
