Milo Baughman Sofa in Primavera Velvet by Jack Lenor Larsen

About the Item

Milo Baughman tuxedo shape sofa with six covered block feet, two down filled seat cushions and four down filled back cushions upholstered in phenomenally gorgeous (yet extinct!) Primavera velvet by Jack Lenor Larsen which was created in 1959 by Don Wight. Note how skillfully aligned the pattern is so that it corresponds from the body of the sofa to the seat cushions to the back cushions (even the edge of the back cushions!) then continues all the way through the back frame of the sofa. The velvet shows only mild wear on the front of the arm rests and backside corners (knees and elbows). Tops of seat cushions slightly worn but no issues. The flip side of seat cushions are as immaculate as brand new but the pattern does not line up as well. We removed the original velvet decking and used it to recover the lower front edge of the frame because there was a tear. The decking was replaced with raspberry slubbed silk. We also created two new covers for the armrests. (See detail image which shows the two armrests and two rear corners.) We also replaced the cambric dust cover on the underside. Professionally cleaned October 2023. Ready to place. Don Emerson Wight (1924-1999) was a classically trained artist and fabric designer from New York City. He studied at the Alfred University and also privately. He lived and worked in Greenwich Village (New York), in the Netherlands, and in Paris, France. His work has been exhibited at the Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation Gallery, the Museo Del Gayo, IDANDA, the Cooper Union Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Primavera was the first velvet furnishing item produced by Larsen. Introduced in 1959, it became a popular design and was featured in three different collections: Art Nouveau, Europa, and Great Color of China.
