Stylish Vintage 1970s Swedish Buttoned Black Leather Sofa

A break from our usual, clean-lined Scandi sofas, this is a slouchy couch, laidback and cool. Swedish in origin and dating from the early 1980s, it’s deeply buttoned across its six plump cushions and wide arms which gives it a softness, a roundness. It’s a particularly inviting couch, one that you want to flop down onto and stretch out. Its black leather upholstery has a high sheen and comes wrinkled with use but that’s the joy of vintage leather – it becomes more characterful and relaxed the older it gets. For all that its cushions are generous, the overall proportions of the sofa are low and compact so it would suit a smaller lounge and could sit below a window.

This original, preloved sofa is ‘sold as seen’. It is in good – very good, used condition. The leather upholstery has been surface cleaned with a specialist, nourishing cleaner and the sofa has been thoroughly vacuumed and checked.  The black leather upholstery is in good order on the cushions – it’s soft and supple. There are six in total with working zips, secure buttons and plump inners, all in good order. There are minor signs of wear to the cushion tops, some wrinkling, some superficial marks and sunlight fading here and there but this is a feature of used leather and very much part of its character and appeal.  The fixed leather upholstery on the sofa frame including the armrests is also in good order, hugging the contours of the frame. Again, there are minor scuffs and marks here and there but nothing specific to flag. The finishing fabric under the cushions is in good, tidy order too. The stained legs are in good condition and screw into the frame. The sofa is well-made, with no wobbles, creaks or signs of repair.
