There is wonderful appeal to this this lovely pair of arm chairs which comes from a perfect blending of old and new. The enduring beauty of the original Gustavian style and craftsmanship is accentuated by the distressed white painted finish that contrasts with the natural wood with hints of red paint beneath, while the new blue upholstery adds a fresh and lively touch. The hand carved ribbon and rope patterns around the arms and frame are traditional designs for this period also adding depth and character to this inviting pair. These arm chairs sit very comfortably and have been professionally upholstered including seats, arm rests and backs with new padding and are covered in a bold blue and white floral design. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
