Arne Norell 'Merkur' Sofa in Cognac Leather

$9,750

About the Item

Arne Norell for Norell Möbel AB, sofa model 'Merkur', leather, wood, Sweden, 1960s This high-quality sofa called ‘Merkur’ is designed by the talented Swedish designer Arne Norell (1917-1971). Characteristic for this model is the notable space between the backrest and seat that is further expressed by lacking an extra row of tufted buttons. The solid and bulky appearance of the sofa is further enhanced by short wooden legs. The corpus is upholstered in cognac leather that developed visible patina over the years. The sofa does not only look eccentric, but is undoubtedly comfortable to sit in.
