This is an exceptional quality antique English Regency mahogany chaise longue, circa 1820, which has been newly upholstered and is in very good condition. The chaise features (when facing) a right-hand raised sweeping upholstered arm. The back, which is also upholstered, sweeps down into a finely shaped mahogany scroll end. The foot of the chaise encompasses a finely shaped scroll end frame and fine reeeding adorns the frame of the couch. The chaise has been newly upholstered in a top quality silk-based fabric, with a diamond pattern, in coffee and cream colours, finished with a fine duck egg blue spot structure, complete with new matching braiding. This upholstery would have reflected the original style of upholstery used. The chaise features a removable dense swab cushion above a webbed frame, with a ruched and piped bolster cushion. The swab cushion incorporates a zip, just in case the material needed to be removed for cleaning. The seat is firm but comfortable to sit on; you do not sink into the chaise. The chaise stands on its original melon shaped fluted baluster mahogany legs and boasts the original top quality brass castor cups and wheels, which are all in good condition.
This chaise features a rich dark brown mahogany colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
This item would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the living room or bedroom. The item would certainly grace any home or office and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.
