A beautiful Napoleon III settee with the original period French gray paint and detailed carving on the back, arms and legs matched with the Victorian style cut velvet fabric from the early 1920’s is the perfect blend of different styles. The seat cushion and dust cover were recently replaced, using the original fabric. We found this piece in Les Puces in Paris and Monique, the shop owner, was so passionate about the carving details and she personally called to have the seat repaired the day we were in the market. It was picked up while we stood there and was returned before we left at the end of the day. The slightly worn spot on the seat fabric was purposefully positioned front and center to maintain the character of the piece. A wonderful addition to a library or sitting room or the small frame allows for use in a hallway or foyer.
