Background Info and Provenance
(Written in 2007)
A beautiful 3-SEATER lounge sofa from the early 1960’s with the sleek modest quality of Scandinavian furniture. The manufacturer is unknown, but I’d say it was done by either a small manufacturer in Australia (Avalon comes to mind) or a European firm. This piece has been meticulously restored, and presents extremely well. Sofas of this quality and design are not seen in furniture stores anymore except specialist design stores where a piece of this calibre would sell for around the $5000-$6000 mark. This piece has a beautifully sculptured shape with a lean, fluid profile. This refined style draws heavy influence from DANISH furniture and compares to the work of highly-respected furniture designers such as Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner… The base spring system uses a web configuration instead of the conventional parallel layout- these springs are still all original and provide strength, supreme comfort and DURABILITY. All joints are very sturdy and strong and show no signs of looseness, squeaks or movement AT ALL. With the attention to detail and construction qualities, these early pieces are now highly sought-after. Today there are very few lounges on the market that will hold or increase in value with time. There are a myriad of reasons why this Danish-style from the early 1960’s is so highly popular. Washing or re-upholstery of the loose cushions is easy, un-upholstered armrests means your lounge looks better for longer and pieces like this have very solid investment appeal- lounges with sculptural timber frames are rarely made anymore. This piece is also one of the most COMFORTABLE sofas I’ve had- the seat is set at a perfect angle for comfort and the tall back supports your whole upper-body. Professional restoration of this piece in a quality WARWICK textile has cost us a packet presenting an astute investment opportunity.
