Vintage Danish Brown Leather Three Seat Sofa
This is a classic, Scandinavian leather three seat 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 great condition with only light signs of wear and tear. It most likely dates from the 1980s, possibly last 1970s, but the design is very much midcentury-inspired, undoubtedly influenced by Borge Mogensen. It has a fantastic silhouette from all sides and we love the on-show dark wooden trim around its lower edge. It 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 Danish sofa in a warm, neutral chestnut brown leather.
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. The mid-brown leather upholstery is in 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 minor signs of wear to the seat cushion tops and edges, some surface wrinkling and light fading here and there (this is shown in our photos) 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 a couple of surface marks to the leather on one end – again, we’ve shown this in the photos. There are very minor surface scuffs to the dark wood legs and to the wooden trim around the lower edge. 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.
