NOTE- I sold this piece through iNVISeDGE for $1550 in 2007. If I found this exact piece again I’d price it at more.

Background Info and Provenance

What a fantastic piece! This 2-SEATER lounge has a classic 1950’s design that has drawn a lot of positive attention at my showroom. I have had it suggested that it might be a Featherston piece- it’s NOT. It’s funny how people decide that any lounge with a fantastic 50’s design must be done by Grant Featherston. I am not certain of the designer but am strongly inclined to say it was done by Paul Kafka, a Sydney boutique maker from the 50’s.  English G-Plan also springs to mind but I don’t think it is. I feel this design rivals Featherston’s work but doesn’t have the same price tag. The equivalent Featherston piece is valued at about $8000+. Classic 1950’s pieces have broad appeal and very solid investment appeal. 1950’s furniture has enjoyed everlasting popularity and the fun carefree designs of the 50s are set to be with us for a long time to come. This piece boasts top-quality construction and was built to last. Why buy furniture of questionable quality when these pieces have already proven themselves for over 50 years? Also this is the exact lounge that was chosen to be shown in the 2008 Edition of Celebrity Homes magazine- if you buy the lounge you should get yourself a copy of the magazine!

Today in 2019 I’m basically certain this was done by Paul Kafka. I have sold another Paul Kafka lounge more recently. That listing should have more information about Paul Kafka and his work. Use the SEARCH box on our website to find similar listings and more information.
