Edward Wormley 'New York' Sofa in Orange Upholstery

About the Item

Edward Wormley for Dunbar Furniture / DUX of Sweden, sofa model 5316, fabric, beech, metal, United States, design 1952 This three-seat sofa was designed by Edward Wormley for Dunbar in 1952. The eye-catching orange fabric turns this elegant sofa into a real statement piece. The design convinces visually through the well-balanced appearance and the stabile construction. The wooden frame in beech holds the seat in a graceful manner. Edward Wormley (1907-1995) was an American designer. After not finishing his degree due to lack of funds Wormley started to work as an interior designer. In the 1940s, Wormley was hired to work with Dunbar. Their collaboration was a success story as Dunbar incorporated several techniques and aesthetics from European design. It was Wormley's aim to create a high-quality line, that was also available for the masses. Please note that this item is in good, used condition. The foam and coil springs are in used condition and need to be replaced. Replacement of the foam and/or reupholstery can be done before shipping by our experienced craftsmen and -women in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece contains its value and is ready for the many years to come. We kindly ask you to contact our design experts for further information about the endless possibilities our restoration and upholstery atelier has to offer. Of course, a locally organized reupholstery is possible as well
