Aubusson upholstery always offers stunning and intricate patterns, and this settee is no exception. Dating back to circa 1900, the weathered yet magnificently original upholstery shows a scene of children playing on a farm with dogs chasing chickens around them. The trim of dark tacks and the weather dark gilt finish of the chair frames together offer definitive features. It’s a piece that certainly belongs in your living room.
