Iconic Robsjohn Gibbings sectional sofa, presently the only one known to exist, offered here for the first time since new in 1951. This sofa is designed in three sections with a slight Asian flair with recessed black ebonized bases and recessed casters. Found in it's original location, this sofa was chosen by Richard Himmel for the client's home in 1951, and was custom ordered from Widdicomb. Photos of this sofa in it's original location, with the Mesa coffee table as it's mate will be included in sale. Restoration photos showing the complete stripping and revcovering of this beauty will also be included. Original Goodyear dense rubber cushioning was as full and supple as the day it was made, and was used again for the seat cusions. New fabric is a high quality short cut all cotton chenille, and done in a two-tone treatment to mimic the original design. Original Widdicomb brass tag with the date stamp for 1951 is present. We have also included a photo of the sofa as shown in the Robsjohn/Widdicomb furniture chart. This sofa measures nearly 15 feet in length, and can be separated and used in any space. Gentle curvature is a super feature of this sofa, and it is certainly the only one out there anyone's seen available. 24 HOUR HOLD ONLY
