Curvy Vintage 1950s Danish Brocade Velvet Sofa with Carved Frame

What a statement sofa this old-fashioned, curvaceous beauty is. Swirls and scallops, curves and contours with wooden details on the arms, the front legs and with a carved trim around its frame. The brocade velvet fabric features a shiny, intricate leaf pattern repeated across the sofa’s surfaces. It’s a creamy, pale yellow with a golden sheen, a neutral that would partner easily with any other colour, and it’s in fantastic order throughout with just the lightest signs of wear. The feminine flow of the frame is accentuated with braid piping that draws the eye over its lines. With neat two seater proportions and elegant details, it will inject a touch of instant glamour. It’s comfortable too with a firm, sprung seat and a tall, contoured back. It’s Danish in origin and dates from the 1950s.

This original, vintage sofa is ‘sold as seen’. It’s in good – very good, used condition.  The piece has been thoroughly vacuumed and checked but otherwise left well alone as it’s in such great shape. The original golden brocade velvet upholstery is in very good order, hugging the contours of the frame tightly and all the piping and buttons (one in each arm) are securely attached. There is just very light wear to the velvet , just two very small marks shown in our photos but in the overall context of the sofa, they are barely noticeable. The wooden legs carry some superficial knocks but are otherwise in good order. The frame itself is solidly built with no wobbles or joint concerns. There are a handful of old wood worm holes on the underside of the frame (see our photos). These are historic and minor but have been treated as a precautionary measure. Sadly there is no maker’s mark but we’ve imported this sofa directly from Denmark. Do browse our photos for a good sense of colour and condition. You’d be welcome to view the sofa, just get in touch.
