This is a fine antique English Regency chaise longue / day bed, constructed from solid mahogany, circa 1820 – 1830, originating from Aqualate Hall in Staffordshire, which has been newly upholstered, in excellent condition. The Regency chaise longue / days bed features (when facing you) a right-hand deep buttoned upholstered arm, with a straight upholstered backrest. The arm and backrest are solid in joint. The chaise has been newly upholstered, to a professional standard, in top-quality top quality satin chenille aubergine / grey upholstery, finished with brass stud work. Further decorative pleated detail can be seen along the frieze. The stuff over seat has been newly sprung and is in excellent condition. The seat is firm but comfortable to sit on; you do not sink into the Regency chaise longue / day bed. The underside of the Regency chaise longue / day bed has been traditionally upholstered in hessian. The chaise stands on its original mahogany legs, with ring turned detail to the front legs and splayed sabre legs to the rear, sitting on the original brass castors, which are also in good condition.
The Regency chaise longue / day bed features a rich dark brown mahogany colour. It has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through age and years of care and cleaning it has received. It is impossible to re-create this colour if it has been re-polished.
The Regency chaise longue / day bed would look superb in a variety of rooms, especially the living room or bedroom. The item would certainly grace any home or office and is a great investment, as it is extremely functional.
