Sweet Vintage Danish Red Velvet Two Seat Sofa / Love Seat

This vintage sofa is a poppet. Made for two, its high sides and back make it perfect for an alcove, a bay window, a snug or a dull corner that could do with an interesting functional feature. Upholstered in a bright, cherry red velvet, it’s in sound vintage condition with just light signs of use. A Danish original, this style of seat is referred to as a ‘London sofa’ there but no one really knows why. A more traditional, old-fashioned design than we would normally expect from midcentury Denmark but it’s a charmer and these more decorative pieces, with their neat dimensions and quirky details, like those tassels around the bottom edge, are great standalone pieces.

This is an original, vintage sofa that are ‘sold as seen’. It is in very good, used condition. We have given the piece a thorough vacuum and frame check but have carried out no further restoration work as it’s in such great order.  The original cherry red velvet upholstery is clean and in very good condition throughout. The piping and lower fringing is well attached apart from one small pull on the back left corner – please see our photo. The wooden legs behind the tassels carry some very minor scuffs but these are barely noticeable. The frame is solid and sturdy, well-made with no signs of repair or joint concerns. There is no maker’s mark on the sofa but it’s imported directly from Denmark and we believe it dates from 1970s / 1980s.
