Gustavian Antique Furniture

Heeren van De Dam delights in choosing the finest of 18th and early 19th century Gustavian antique furniture from Scandinavia. We travel to Sweden ourselves, searching for pieces that exhibit the trademarks of authentic Gustavian furniture: clean, simple lines and a muted colour palette.

The Gustavian era stretched from the reign of Gustav II (1771-1792) to that of his son, Gustav IV Adolf (1792-1809). During this time Sweden was greatly inspired by the manners and taste of French society. The elegant, curvy lines of Rococo became more geometric with Swedish influence. A few masters from this era are Jonas Hulsten, Anders Lundelius, Fredrik Scholin and Karl Fedrick Ekstrom. Their designs fetch enormous prices at today's furniture auctions.
