Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete handlar om en gustaviansk soffa från Löfstad slott. Jag vill visa på alla de förändringar en stoppad möbel kan genomgå under 200 år. Vad som är original och vad som senare tillkommit. I alla dessa spår efter renoveringar kan man söka information. Jag fann stolmakarens signatur vilket gjorde det möjligt att åldersbestämma soffans stomme och jag kunde efter noggrann undersökning konstatera att soffans stoppning var betydligt mycket yngre. Syftet var också att restaurera soffan, att klä om den i ett gammalt sidentyg och förse den med nya snörmakerier. I detta arbete var jag bunden till Emilie Pipers önskemål, Löfstad slotts sista ägarinna, att den för alltid skulle se ut såsom den gjorde när hon dog 1926. Vidare redovisas resultatet av mina efterforskningar om soffans historia och dess ägare.

Abstract [en]

The object of this project is a Gustavian sofa from Löfstad Castle. My aim was to demonstrate the alterations that upholstered furniture can undergo over two hundred years, showing what is original and what has been added at a later date. It is possible to obtain information from all the traces of restoration. In this sofa I found the stamp of the cabinetmaker, which made it possible to date the frame of the sofa. Furthermore, after thorough investigation I was able to determine that the filling of the sofa was much younger than the frame. My purpose was also to restore the sofa to an appearance as close as possible to the state that it had on the death of Emilie Piper, the last owner of Löfstad, in 1926. However, I also had to respect Emilie Piper’s will which stipulated that nothing was to be changed after her death. Finally, I also present my research concerning the history of this Gustavian sofa and its various owners.
