Louis XV Couch
Dimensions : 99 H X 85 W X 71 D cm
Original: Private Collection, Brussels
Resembling the great « bed chamber » or drawing-room chairs, this multipurpose couch consists of graceful curves still used at the end of the Louis XV style period. The central crest of the back is a very expressive feature of the « hump », which is more ornate, thus balancing the graceful curves joining bolsters at the same height. The elegantly-curved low seat, is carved with subtle flowers and foliage. This is an excellent piece of seating furniture.
