Abel Landry Settee


Crafted in the silhouette of an unfurled lady's fan, this welcoming settee, done at the turn of the 20th Century in the Art Nouveau style, features perfectly balanced, sweeping lines. The bowed outline of the arms as they transition to feet is perfectly mirrored in the upward curvature of the sofa's back. A dreamy, feathery motif decorates each arm, carefully carved in gentle relief.
