Mid-Century Modern Black Faux Leather Love Seat Sofa by Taylor Chair Co. Style D

$2,495

About

Handsome Mid-Century Modern love seat length sofa in black vinyl faux leather upholstery and walnut base in the style of Wormley for Dunbar or Harvey Probber. It is in wonderful vintage condition. We believe the black vinyl to be fairly new. The walnut base does have age appropriate little nicks and dings. Please see photos, circa 1960s. It is hard to say who designed and produced this fabulously gorgeous and simple streamline Mid-Century Modern style sofa first. Was is Edward Wormley for Dunbar? Was it Harvey Probber or Florence Knoll? Or, did Taylor Chair Company, the maker of this particular love seat, actually make their rendition first? Does it matter? You will love the lines and materials used in this two-seat love seat Lawson shape sofa with a tight back and two loose seat cushions. It is covered in a very nice and natural looking black faux leather vinyl. So close to the real thing its is hard to tell the difference. And sets on a walnut Parsons’ style base. Simple but very handsome. Taylor Chair Company was founded by Benjamin Fitch in 1816 Bedford, Ohio. He originally made split-bottom chairs in his cabin. In 1841 one of Mr. Fitch’s employees, William O. Taylor, married Mr. Fitch’s daughter. William quickly took over active management of the company and by late 1940s the company became known as W.O. Taylor Factory. After a fire in the original location the factory moved. In 1871 W.O. Taylor’s son, Vincent A. Taylor, took the helm and the name was changed to W.O. Taylor and Son as they became an award-winning company. In 1885 the company incorporated becoming a public company known as The Taylor Chair Company. Business boomed through the 1920s. Enough so they were able to survive the great depression. They became extremely busy again in the 1940s after WWII when they employed the highest number of people in their history. Again, business boomed in the 1950s and 1960s responding to the changing market for modern designs and expanding their services to professional interior designers. At that time The Taylor Chair Co. was recognized as the oldest manufacturing company in existence in the Western Reserve. In 2006 the factory once again moved to continue offering the honored tradition established by Benjamin Fitch of providing chairs/furniture built to last for years, with good materials, good workmanship, and styles to satisfy customers. Sadly, the company ceased operation on June 8, 2012. This small-scale sofa will be perfect for so many places in your home. You need to make it yours.
