Vintage Grete Jalk Fd-118 Four-Seat Sofa in Teak and Grey Wool, 1960s


An excellent example of Grete Jalk's Classic FD-118 four-seat sofa in Teak and Italian grey boiled-wool; manufactured by France & Son, imported by John Stuart Inc. This expert, minimal frame design allows for lightness in appearance and strength in use, a true achievement of seating design. The upholstered panel that supports the seat cushions (white), has a bent-laminated teak brace, preventing the long front seat rail from bowing or flexing under the weight of multiple sitters. This piece retains original manufacturer's and importer's marks, as well as the France and Son 'made in Denmark' stamp to frame.
