Here is a good example of an antique French Louis XV style carved painted beech and upholstered tapestry couch, circa 1910, in original condition. Most likely constructed of solid beech, the couch exhibits a distressed shabby chic finish, with a stunning quality carved and painted gilt floral frame. It stands on elegant cabriole legs at the front and splayed feet to the rear. The couch features its original tapestry upholstery including the original brass studwork, depicting floral motifs on a cream and brown background. The couch features open padded arms with shaped sides. The back rail boasts stunning floral carved pediment; the frame also boasts floral carvings to the front of the seat apron and the knees, as well as scroll carving to the arms. The frame of the couch is painted in an off-white colour, while the floral carvings are picked out in pink and green. The shaped supports to the arms display gilt carving. The seat is well sprung so that you do not sink into the seat. The underside of the seat is finished with traditional webbing.
As it boasts the original finish, it has a lovely distressed colour; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received.
This couch would look superb in a variety of rooms from the living room, hallway, to the bedroom or conservatory. The couch would certainly grace any home and is a great investment as it is extremely functional. So don’t miss out your chance to own a lovely set of furniture.

This couch is in original condition. We have cleaned the tapestry with upholstery cleaner. The couch features its original tapestry upholstery with original brass studwork. The upholstery shows signs of general fading, wear and tear and small marks. There are also signs of wear to the upholstery on the top of the left hand arm (please see photos). Nominal old use marks are present to the leading edges of the painted frame, but nothing significant, considering the age of the item. Please note, the couch displays a “shabby chic” finish and as such, the paintwork is worn in places. The seat is well strung and the underside is traditionally webbed. The back and arms are also in good condition with no splits or loose joints, and no missing carvings to the frame. This couch is well constructed, solid in joint overall and is ready to use.
