$12,000per set

About

Highly sought after pair of black leather and Brazilian Rosewood 'Bastiano' loveseat sofas by Afra and Tobia Scarpa for Gavina, signed with several Gavina labels. This elegantly crafted sofa has been fabricated from Rosewood which displays a beautiful and vivid grain and the original black leather cushions. The sofa backs and sides features sculptural frames, making this sofa ideal for placing centrally in a space so the sofa can be appreciated from all angles. *NOTE, this listing is priced for the pair. If you wish to purchase a single, contact us to discuss. This pair of Bastiano settees retains their original black leather cushions which exhibit moderate patina and age which adds additional beauty for those who love the casual laid back vintage vibe of aged leather. Gavina, being the original Italian producer of this design, are the more sought after examples above and beyond the later produced Knoll International examples, plus add in the fact that these are in Rosewood which is much more desirable and sought after than Walnut examples, and also consider these are in their original black leather cushions with original early production Gavina labels.... making this pair of highly sought after Bastiano loveseats ideal for a design collector or interior designer with a hard to please and demanding client. This pair of black leather and Brazilian Rosewood Afra and Tobia Scarpa Bastiano two-seater sofas by Gavina would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: 28.25" H x 59.5" W x 31" D Seat Height: 14.5" Seat Depth: 22.5" Arm Height: 24.25" CONDITION: This pair Scarpa Bastiano of loveseat sofas have moderate patina throughout.
