1900s white-painted Swedish Gustavian-style salon table. Simple and stylish, this Gustavian-style salon table from the early 1900s is painted a creamy Swedish white and would make an elegant addition to any room.

Gustavian style furniture is as quintessentially Swedish as meatballs, boiled potatoes, and lingonberry jam. Rosettes, tapered legs and fluting are common design elements of the style, as are subtle gilded details, and peaceful neutral colors in the white, cream, and soft blue-grey range.
Gustavian-style borrows many design elements from French furniture, but tend to feature straighter edges and less frivolous frills, which has become the hallmark of the less-fussy Old World Swedish style.
