Florence Knoll Sofa in Patterned Dedar Jacquard Velvet, De Coene, Belgium, 1950s

About the Item

A rare three-seat sofa designed by Florence Knoll for Knoll International and produced by De Coene in the late 1950s. From 1954 onwards, the renowned Belgian manufacturer De Coene produced Knoll furniture under license. A substantial number of influential Belgian and other European architects started to incorporate Knoll furniture in their designs to emphasize the modernity in their work. This comfortable sofa has been fully reconditioned and reupholstered in a black and brown patterned Dedar velvet. This jacquard velvet has an abstract irregular labyrinth pattern inspired by the stylized language of Cubism and wild animal skins in natural tones. The six black lacquered steel legs are positioned at an angle, giving the sofa a striking, slightly tilted appearance.

  • Gustave Gautier Attributed Armchair in Oak and Jacquard Fabric, France, 1950s
    By Nobilis, Gustave Gautier
    Located in The Hague, NL
    This rare armchair was produced in France in the late 1950s. The design of this particular model is attributed to the designer Gustave Gautier. The chair is characterized by the sharp angles, geometric lines and scissor construction of the solid oak wood frame. The pointed back legs form a diagonal line and are widening towards the front of the seat. The front legs form a second diagonal line and a scissor shape in combination with the back legs. They're attached to the backrest and to the arms, which are executed in a narrowing, pointed line again. The armrests attached on top of the arms end in a rounded, more organic shape. The chair has been newly upholstered in a sumptuous ivory/ light cream jacquard Nobilis Paris fabric. By combining very irregular woolly yarns and thrown threads, the fabric has a refined texture and appearance. The oak wood is in very good original condition with a natural, attractive patina. Other designers working in the same French Modern style include Guillerme & Chambron...
