This unique sofa mixes the familiar with the historical. Taking on a distinctly asymmetrical style, the look of this piece defies definition. Featuring luscious velvet upholstery and painted wood taking on the appearance of gilding, this settee would be easily imagined in a courtly setting of the East.
Created as a special commission for Madame Corneille.
