French Reproduction Upholstered Gustavian Stool
A lovely reproduction Louis XVI style stool finished in a soft, creamy antique white paint. The Swedes, under the rule of King Gustav III, would paint their furniture and interiors in soft, milky white colors in order to lighten their long, dark winters. King Gustav was very taken with French style, which he brought back to Sweden, and is evident in Gustavian furniture. This French reproduction is a fine representation of a Gustavian period stool.
