About

Designed in 1963 by John Svezia, Ronal Beckman and Irving Harper for George Nelson and Assoc. the Sling Sofa is an innovative design which uses a chrome-plated tubular steel frame, thick leather, neoprene and reinforced rubber to suspend the seat and back cushions. Handsome and comfortable, the design balances the formal and casual, looking great in any interior. Most commonly seen in back or tan leather, this rare two-tone example was custom ordered with a black sling and dark brown leather cushion.
