Original Danish Black Leather Three Seat Sofa by Vemb Polstermobelfabrik

Attributed to Vemb Polstermobelfabrik, this sofa is the archetypal, classic Scandinavian sofa – clean-cut, unfussy and handsome with a sharp silhouette from all sides. For all its boxy, rather masculine good looks, it’s really very comfortable and comes with generous dimensions from seat width to seat depth. It’s a couch you can stretch out on and it comes in fantastic condition with just light signs of wear and tear. It most likely dates from the early 1980s but the design is very much midcentury-inspired, unmistakably influenced by Borge Mogensen. It will mix and match with furniture from different periods too so a great choice for a mixed, modern interior. A very fine, vintage sofa imported from Denmark.

This original, preloved sofa is ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. The leather upholstery has been surface cleaned with a specialist, nourishing cleaner and the sofa has been thoroughly vacuumed. The black leather upholstery is in very good order on the cushions – it’s thick, soft and supple. There are eight in total with working zips and plump inners, all in very good order. There are very minor signs of wear to the seat cushion tops, a little wrinkling (please see our photos) here and there but this is a feature of used leather and very much part of its character and appeal.  The fixed leather on the sofa frame is also in good order, hugging the contours of the frame tightly. There are minor surface scuffs to the light beech wood legs. The sofa is superbly constructed, with no wobbles, creaks or signs of repair. It’s imported directly from Denmark and the maker’s label is visible underneath. It most likely dates from the 1980s. It’s a fine, quality sofa made with superior construction and top quality leather. Do browse our photos for a good sense of its colour and condition. If you would like to view the piece, please do get in touch.
