Neoclassic or Louis XVI Settee

‎"Innovation is often the ability to reach into the past and bring back what 
is Good, what is Beautiful, what is Useful, what is Lasting." 
Parish Sister
France 1760 - 1789
Furniture designed during this period is known as
Louise XVI or Neoclassic.
 ... this was the era of Marie Antoinette and 
of course the French Revolution.
I love the delicate tapered fluted leg; and this is definitely one of the characteristics of Louis XVI chair. 

Won't you like to have a slice of cake or macaroon and a cup of tea on this settee?

This is definitely a timeless piece.
