1940s Scandinavian Modern Curved Sofa in the Style of Carl-Johan Boman



Beautiful 1940s large curved sofa with tufted backrest in the style of Carl-Johan Boman One of our pickers in Denmark found this sofa on a trip to Turku in Finland the hometown of Boman Oy which combined with the design style lead us to believe the sofa could well be by Boman. He fancied organic voluptious organic designs with short shaped thick legs and low seat heights and further, the sofa is very much in trend with the design style popular in Sweden and Finland at the time. Further, the legs are made from elm wood also typical for Swedish and Finnish furniture making where the Danes preferred oak or beech. Overall very good condition. The sofa must have been re-upholstered in recent past and it stands in very good to excellent condition with near mint velvet fabric. The seat and backrest has spring coils that remain firm and sturdy. We offer competitive re-upholstery services on this sofa. Carl-Johan Boman studied interior architecture at the Royal College of Arts & Crafts in Berlin and later worked for his father at the Boman Furniture Factory. The company was a popular decorator for upper-class homes in Finland and also in Russia especially in the early midcentury.
