Antique settles are comfortable pieces of furniture,much like a cross between a sofa and a wooden bench, with early versions dating back to the 15th and 16th century. Becoming popular across Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, Swedish settles in particular are popular with antique lovers. These old Swedish settles often had short back rests, sleek armrests and were long enough to accommodate 3-4 people at once. Even though they are from a different era Swedish settles can make the perfect addition to modern decorative houses. While a Swedish settlemay be too bold and bulky for the living room, it might give your garden the perfect antique modern mix that you would like to see. These could also sit wonderfully at home in a conservatory.
We have a few interesting ones in our stock here at Arcadia Antiques.
These are in interesting earthy colours with carved backrests featuring stunning designs that are sure to catch the eye of your guests.
In your home or conservatory, you could pair a Swedish settle with a small centre table and enjoy your evening tea or even just chatting with your friends in the garden. Although made from wood, these Swedish settles are available in a range of colours so you can choose your colour depending on the overall tone of your garden or house décor.
If you have space for more than one, two contrasting settles could pair up well in your garden. The legs are slightly above the ground so you don’t need to worry about the wood getting moistened or spoiled in the garden.
Find the right fit for your garden in terms of colours and size and you are ready to have an all-new place to sit and relax amidst nature.
