19th Century French Giltwood Settee with Raw Silk Upholstery

This stunning giltwood settee will be the focal point wherever it is placed.  We were told it once resided in the ballroom of The Grand Hotel Noailles in Marseilles, a fitting place for this piece.  It was also featured in Architectural Digest a few years ago as the “piece de resistance that snapped the whole room to attention”.

It has recently been upholstered in an elegant cream colored raw silk. There are three bolsters placed on the seat with the end bolsters having a large tassels draped gracefully over the sides of the settee.  The geometric lines of the settee are softened by the floral and foliate motifs. Straight lines are given interest with shaped indents or protruding right angles.  The four back legs are rectangular columns on stepped out rectangular feet with an ionic capital and shaped floral finial. The four round front legs have motifs of stylized guilloche and stylized hart’s tongue leaves, which soften the straight lines of the back legs.  The capped toupee feet are round.  The scrolling floral motifs on the upper back molding also serve to soften the straight horizontal lines of the settee.

This magnificent settee can almost qualify as a piece of art, depending upon the setting.  Versatile in its style, it can be used with contemporary, formal or traditional design..

CONDITION:    Old restorations; minor creasing to gold on back side leg; minor chips and rubs to gold throughout.
