Dunbar Sofas

American

Revered for its handcrafted and highly collectible mid-century modern sofas, coffee tables and other furnishings, Dunbar Furniture was founded in 1910 in Berne, Indiana, but it didn’t gain widespread recognition until the ’30s, following the introduction of its president to a designer who would leave an indelible mark on the company’s legacy: Edward Wormley.

After a stint at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Oswego, Illinois-born Wormley worked as an interior designer for Marshall Field’s before joining Dunbar in 1931. Initially focused on developing the company’s cheapest furniture line, which could be bought with soap coupons, he was soon leading Dunbar Furniture into a new era of residential furniture for modern American homes. He would serve as the company’s design director for over three decades, designing about 150 pieces each year.

During that time, he oversaw the production of designs in a wide range of materials, with influences ranging from Scandinavian modernism to Art Deco. There were modern upholstery pieces, like swiveling lounge chairs and low-slung sofas, and experiments with textural wood on bar carts and cabinets as well as minimal, sculptural tables and functional office furniture. A passionate collector of Tiffany Studios lamps, Wormley used their glass tiles in Dunbar tables in 1956. He also worked on the reproduction of pieces by designers such as Jean-Michel Frank and Richard Riemerschmid.

One standout Dunbar Furniture collection was Janus, introduced in the 1960s, with Austrian-born ceramicists Otto and Gertrud Natzler. These pieces see the Natzlers’ uniquely artful ceramic tiles set into several styles of wooden tables. They remain some of the most sought-after mid-century modern Dunbar pieces on the vintage market today. During the peak of his design career and, indeed, the height of Dunbar Furniture’s history, Wormley amassed a whopping 30 Good Design awards between 1950 and 1955 through the “Good Design” exhibition, hosted by the Chicago Merchandise Mart and the Museum of Modern Art. Dunbar today produces a limited selection of archival Wormley designs, but many sales of original Dunbar pieces are through the resale market.

Edward Wormley Dunbar Oasis Sofas in Ivory Boucle Early First Generation 1930s
By Dunbar Furniture, Edward Wormley
Located in Dallas, TX
The price listed is per sofa. This is a rare first edition Oasis Sofa designed by Edward Wormley and created in the 1930s when he first began his tenure at the Dunbar furniture company of Berne Indiana. The Oasis sofa is not only a historically significant piece of twentieth-century design history, but it is also undeniably elegant and most importantly, extremely comfortable. This is an heirloom quality hand-built sofa crafted with a solid hardwood frame that has been professionally restored to the highest possible standard. The complete restoration included all new foam, reinforcing the frame, re-working the eight-way hand-tied springs, upholstering with new high-performance Italian boucle material, and refinishing the solid mahogany legs. These sofas are almost 100 years old and are now ready for another 100 years of enjoyment. This era of design was significant for Wormley because it marked his style as a more formal brand of modernism, re-imagining classic forms while removing the unnecessary carvings and embellishments to give them a more modern, 20th-century appeal. As rare as these sofas are we were miraculously able to source a matching pair. They have both been restored to the same specifications and are a perfect mirrored pair. The price listed is for EACH sofa, but, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a pair of one of the most prestigious classic modern designer sofas...

Questions About Dunbar Sofas
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    The sturdiest sofa is largely a matter of personal opinion. Generally, the materials of the frame greatly impact the sturdiness of a sofa. Kiln-dried hardwoods are often more durable than softer woods and engineered wood materials. Pieces featuring dowel construction, corner blocks and metal-bracketed joints are usually stronger than ones assembled with staples, nails and glue. On 1stDibs, shop a large collection of vintage and antique sofas.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMarch 22, 2022
    Dunbar furniture is made in High Point, North Carolina. The original location of the company was Berne, Indiana. Its relocation occurred after Currey & Co. bought Dunbar from founder James Wormley in 1970. On 1stDibs, shop a selection of Dunbar furniture.
