Venetian Red Fabric Italian Sofa, 1950s

About

Sofa, red fabric and metal, Italy,1950s. This gorgeous Venetian sofa is an iconic example of Italian design from the 1950s. Organic and sculptural, this two-and-a-half-seat sofa is anything but minimalistic. Equipped with the original stiletto brass feet which are narrow conically tapered and therefore rest on a small end only, what makes this sofa seem to defy the laws of gravity and balance. Beautifully curved yet sharp rounded edges. The tufted back forms a beautiful curve which smoothly runs over into the armrests, and so do the upholstered buttons too. Upholstered in Venetian red velvet with golden lace trim. The upholstery shows minor traces of age and use. Therefore reupholstery is advised. This is possible in any kind of fabric or leather of your choice. Feel free to ask for more information about the many possibilities of our in-house atelier.
