This full lounge suite SOLD through iNVISeDGE in 2015 for $2400 (for BOTH armchairs and the 3-seater couch). Today in 2019 I’d price the exact same suite at about $2600 (for all 3 pieces). The listing price is for the 3.5-seater sofa only.
Background Info and Provenance
A VINTAGE 3-seater designer lounge / sofa. I’m almost certain this was done by Danish Deluxe of Melbourne. It has the date stamped underneath on a label that’s almost completely faded- it’s 1968 or 1969. I’d say this may have been an authentic Danish design that Danish Deluxe had the license to produce. I have not come across this exact design in over 14 years of being in this business- to say it’s rare is an understatement- I’ve come across over 5 million different pieces of furniture but this is the first suite like this that I’ve seen. The quality of this piece is exceptional. It’s heavy, solid and very strong. Just one aspect of the design that epitomises the quality is the latex cushioning in the seats. Latex is one of the most expensive cushions money can buy. In my opinion it’s the best- it’s spongy but dense so it’s incredibly supportive and it’s more durable than any cushioning I know. This lounge is over 45 years old but the cushions are all still in amazing condition.
This is also one of the most stunning lounge designs to come out of Australia. I love the boldness coupled with the peaceful flowing lines of the curved armrests. And the fabric is sensational. Earthy, slightly retro, there’s a little bit of interest in it and it complements the frame perfectly. It allows the curves and timber to take the attention- the fabric nestles in the background but when you look at the piece closer it then attracts its own attention.
This piece is extremely comfortable, DURABLE, it’s a solid investment and also looks stunning. I can’t think of anything more I’d want in a lounge.
Trends come and go but when an item built in 1969 attracts attention in 2015 and still has wow factor it has come to supersede trends. There’s no better way to invest in furniture. And to top it off this lounge is over 45-years old- the durability and quality of the construction is obvious when you see its condition all these years on. If you decide to invest in this sofa and need to sell it in the future approach me, I’d be happy to see it again. There are very few better ways to invest in your home and reduce landfill.
