The Louis Sofa, an elegant replica of 18th Century French Furniture, reflects the dynamic evolution of styles during this period. In a matter of decades, 18th Century France transitioned from the Baroque style with its opulent furnishings to the Rococo's intricate curves. This ornate period was swiftly succeeded by the Neoclassical era, characterized by straight lines and rigid geometries.
With this in mind, our team hand-carves the Louis Sofa, integrating the rope design with foliate decoration throughout the frame. The scroll arms terminate with stylized dolphins. We oil gild it in Dutch metal leaf to enhance the finish, providing durability compared to other techniques. The final touch includes a loose seat cushion with soft foam, ensuring a formal shape and adding support.
Handcrafted and upholstered in Zoffany - Crivelli Weave Olivine/amethyst. Moreover, Crivelli is based on an Italian 18th-century silk that depicts scrolling leaves with falling bunches of grapes. A smaller and more intricate damask, this contemporary design has a natural lustre and a light weave construction with a woven ground that gives an aged effect.
We take pride in building and designing pieces like the Louis Sofa in our workshops for over 50 years, therefore continuing to reinforce our commitment to the artistry and craftsmanship of traditional upholstery.
