This Swedish bench has all the right ingredients, solid wood, distressed paint and burlap upholstery. Made during the Gustavian period, circa 1790, this is Sweden’s version of a farmhouse bench or sofa.
This bench has detailed wood carvings throughout and I am crazy about the original paint that is now distressed from years of family service. It’s one big sofa that’s been reupholstered in good old burlap to maintain that vintage feel and all natural style. Now add one tall Swedish Gustavian clock and you’ve got real style circa 2009.
