Based on the description I'd say it is an antique. Ballard has a similar model though, and it comes in a range of fabric options: http://www.ballarddesigns.com/parker-settee/furniture/sofas-loveseats/172160

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Country Modern: A Balancing Act
The limited color palette here allows for the eclectic mix of vintage furniture without resulting in "kountry" overload.
Kit Pollard added this to Formal Dining in the Summertime
I think sometimes it's the heaviliy upholstered chairs that give formal dining rooms a wintry feel. In this case, though, the mix of chair styles and the light fabric keep the space summer-appropriate.
Becky Harris added this to How to Use Texture in Design
White walls, gray trim, a wooden beam, a few dashes of pewter, linen, woven seats and a cushy soft settee all work well together. This is a great way to use a group of eclectic seats around one table.
decordemon added this to Unconventional Dining Room Seating
Pretty banquette, huh? Fooled you, it's a settee against the wall. Here's an amazing alternative to a pricey, custom built-in. With the proper scale, a sofa or settee can work beautifully at a dining table. The biggest objective is to ensure it's easy for guests to get in and out of. If the piece is roughly 24 inches longer than the table on each side, that should do the trick. Also, stick with settees that have low-slung arms or that are completely armless.
Scheer & Co. added this to The Well-Concealed Kitchen
We've looked at banquettes in the kitchen before, but this lovely antique sofa with the softest of patterns is extra cozy, especially coordinated with mismatched dining chairs.
Becky Harris added this to Is Belgian Style the New Shabby Chic?
Don't bring out the silver polish. Matte finishes win out over shine when going for the look.

If using a "banquette," make sure it extends at least one foot from the ends of the table to assure guests can slide in easily. Possible window seat for bedroom...with round marble table and rounded chairs in front...could sit in window and have tea on table.

Pretty banquette, huh? Fooled you, it's a settee against the wall. Here's an amazing alternative to a pricey, custom built-in. With the proper scale, a sofa or settee can work beautifully at a dining table. The biggest objective is to ensure it's easy for guests to get in and out of. If the piece is roughly 24 inches longer than the table on each side, that should do the trick. Also, stick with settees that have low-slung arms or that are completely armless.
