A recent restoration I completed on a Mahogany American Empire Settee. It is also sometimes called a bustle bench or slipper sofa. It would sit at the foot of the bed and when a lady retired for the evening she would sit there to change clothes and get ready for bed. A very romantic piece and I’m very grateful my client allowed me to restore it properly.
I wrote a blog post detailing in depth the restoration of this piece. There are about 50 photos so it’s a bit too much to try and post in the space here.
