Mahogany, Golden Birch and Ash Adorned, Classic Biedermeier Settee



This graceful sofa features wide, arched arms which fan out to cuddle a pair of roll pillows, nestled into the self-sprung seating. A gently sloped back provides comfort, while the solid wood exterior of the sofa displays timeless strength. The elongated fan inlay of mahogany, golden birch and ash, adorn the front panel of each arm.
