A Classical Sofa

New York City, New York
Circa 1835

While this beautiful late Classical sofa might appear simple at first glance, the complexity of its design will be appreciated upon closer inspection. The intricacy and craftsmanship in the placement of its veneers rank this sofa among the finest crafted in the Classical period. The beautiful veneers even extend to the rear of the frame. The sofa is now upholstered in an appropriate woven Scalamandre fabric.

Mahogany, (secondary woods: pine and poplar)
Height: 34½” Width: 86” Depth: 27”
