"Colonial" Settee by Ole Wanscher

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Designed in 1949, Ole Wanscher's casually chic "Colonial" settee was the designer's homage to 18th century English furniture; its spare and elegantly drawn frame fully exposed to view. Carefully handmade by Poul Jeppesen of polished mahogany with a wonderful, glowing, golden quality, the "Colonial" is comfortable and very strongly built. The leather cushions, which are supported by unseen but beautiful stretched woven caning, appear to have been expertly recovered and are in great condition, as indeed the rest of the piece is. A perfect perch upon which to sip a gin and tonic with someone special.
