$2,350

About

The sexiest sofa I’ve had in my possession. This vintage steelcase leather tandem sofa has been recently restored with a 100% genuine buttery black leather. Overall in almost excellent condition with once minor scratch on the back as seen in photos. Not only is this sofa/bench sexy, it’s suuuuper comfortable. Also a very sturdy and substantial piece that will last you forever. Would be perfect in a modern area, living room, study or any area needing luxe sophistication.

About the Artist

Steelcase

The Michigan-based furniture maker Steelcase has a long and distinguished history, but collectors focus on its works from the 1950s to the ’70s, when, along with such companies as Knoll and Herman Miller, the firm helped define the aesthetics of American mid-century modernism.

Steelcase was founded in Grand Rapids in 1912 as the Metal Office Furniture Company, promoting steel desks and other furnishings as safer, fireproof alternatives to wooden pieces at a time when smoking in the workplace was common. Boston’s first skyscraper — the 32-story Customs House—was furnished by the company in 1915. Frank Lloyd Wright turned to the firm in 1937 to fabricate the enameled metal chairs and desks for his Johnson Wax Headquarters in Racine, Wisconsin.

In the 1950s, when Steelcase formally adopted the name it still uses today, the company developed a sleek and functional style employing rectilinear chrome frames for glass-topped tables and upholstered seating pieces. The look is similar to that of the minimal, Bauhaus-inspired designs of Florence Knoll. By the 1970s, Steelcase had enlivened its styling, offering such pieces as chairs and side tables, designed by Gardner Leaver, with circular bases and curving supports. As you will see on these pages, Steelcase designs offer a perfect foundation for a modernist decor, with a touch of flair.
