Provenance and Background Info
This listing is for the 1960’s 3.5-seater sofa only by PARKER. This is genuine PARKER furniture and displays exceptional construction qualities. (This particular design is rare and hard to get.) We also have a matching pair of chairs in a separate listing (go to the Feature Chairs category on our webiste). This design is similar to what Jardan (also Australian) are doing at the moment (a sofa like this in Jardan would be priced at about $6500) but this sofa is more complex. The curves are harder to create and promote a calming, peaceful style. This full suite shows little noticeable use if any. It was re-upholstered about 6 years ago and was used in the “good room” so presents extremely well (as shown in the photos).

Exceeds the quality of most other Parker pieces, FLER, Tessa, Danish Furniture.
In the same league as- B & B Italia, Cassina, most Italian designer pieces, Poltrona Frau, Eames, Coco Republic, Jardan, Cammerich, Camerich, Arthur G, Clu …
Structurally all of these pieces display the quality characteristics for which Parker Furniture is renowned. They are all solid, sturdy pieces with no signs of structural damage at all. These pieces were all recovered only about 5 years ago but then have only been used in the "good room". The fabric is stunning in both looks AND quality. This fabric will last the long-haul. The full suite is in excellent condition... Yes if you want to start nit-picking you may notice that the upholstery is not "brand-new" but overall it presents brilliantly (as the photos show). The cushioning is all in brilliant condition. The chairs and sofa are all on castors which makes it a pleasure to move- really! I've never had an easier time photographing a lounge suite! The colour is predominantly beige with an off-white stripe and there's a very thin stripe of grey on either side of the beige. This fabric is neutral with a slightly modernist twist. I doubt an interior designer could make a better choice of fabric for this suite- I think it works extremely well with this design and was the main reason I wanted to stock this suite. Normally these suites are still in the original fabric which is out-dated and getting "festy". Or people have re-upholstered them but they've tried too hard with bold or bright colours and it all becomes a bit too much. This fabric allows the shape and subtle flowing curves to take focus- not the colour or pattern of the upholstery.
This suite is really comfortable. The seat cushions can also flip over to make it more practical and the covers on the seat-cushions can be unzipped as well and put on a gentle cycle in your washing machine for cleaning- just replace the covers whilst still damp to prevent shrinkage. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
