DESCRIPTION:
A classic sofa designed by Ole Wanscher for France & Søn. Ole Wanscher was the Professor at the Furniture School at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen for many years and his furniture is regarded as some of the finest in Danish design. Although many of his designs were manufactured by some of Denmark's best cabinet makers and were of very high quality, this design was one of his most popular. France & Søn were able to mass produce this design and retain the quality and classic feel that many of Wanscher's pieces are known for. The frame is constructed of massive pieces of solid teak timber. The joinery is fantastic and the Danish wool fabric and spring cushions make it very comfortable to sit in. A classic and sophisticated design that would complement any modern environment. Be sure to check out our set of Senator teak easy chairs!
