Original Vintage Danish Black Leather Three Seat Sofa
This is a classic, low-and-lean, Scandinavian leather three person sofa, with a handsome, clean-cut design matched with superb comfort. It’s a wonderfully lazy couch with generous proportions, perfect for stretching out on and it’s in fantastic condition with only very light signs of use. We love the gentle curves of the arm ends, softening its hard lines. It most likely dates from the late 1970s / early 1980s but the design is very much midcentury-inspired, undoubtedly influenced by Borge Mogensen. It has a fantastic silhouette from all sides and has much to offer the busy, family home for the next 20 years or more – leather is particularly hard-wearing and easy to keep clean. 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 with a great Danish pedigree.
This original piece 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 excellent 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 and some light fading (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 very good order, hugging the contours of the frame tightly. There are minor surface scuffs to the light beech legs. The sofa is superbly constructed, with no wobbles, creaks or signs of repair. It’s imported directly from Denmark and most likely dates from the late 1970s / early 1980s. Sadly there is no maker’s mark but it’s a fine, quality sofa made with superior construction and top quality leather.
