RARE SETTEE FROM “THE SPANISH SET” BY ELIAS BARUP

RARE SETTEE FROM “THE SPANISH SET” BY ELIAS BARUP

ELIAS BARUP
Sweden
1930s
Fruitwood, vintage hemp linen upholstery
36″ high x 55″ wide x 30 1/2″ deep (seat height 17″)

Elias Barup was the first furniture designer for Gärsnäs AB in Sweden. This fantastic settee, which dates from the beginning of his tenure there in the 1930s, is probably modeled on the classic British Knole settee, though the arms are not adjustable.

Recently reupholstered in a vintage hemp linen. We have a pair of matching chairs.
