Edward Wormley for Dunbar Oasis Sofas in Ivory Boucle First Generation 1930s

$ 38,000
  • Description
    The price listed is per sofa.

    This is a rare first edition Oasis Sofa designed by Edward Wormley and created in the 1930s when he first began his tenure at the Dunbar furniture company of Berne Indiana. The Oasis sofa is not only a historically significant piece of twentieth-century design history, but it is also undeniably elegant and most importantly, extremely comfortable.

    This is an heirloom quality hand-built sofa crafted with a solid hardwood frame that has been professionally restored to the highest possible standard. The complete restoration included all new foam, reinforcing the frame, re-working the eight-way hand-tied springs, upholstering with new high-performance Italian boucle material, and refinishing the solid mahogany legs.

    This era of design was significant for Wormley because it marked his style as a more formal brand of modernism, re-imagining classic forms while removing the unnecessary carvings and embellishments to give them a more modern, 20th-century appeal.

    As rare as these sofas are we were miraculously able to source a matching pair. They have both been restored to the same specifications and are a perfect mirrored pair.

    These sofas are almost 100 years old and are now ready for another 100 years of enjoyment.

    The price listed is for EACH sofa, but, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a pair of one of the most prestigious classic modern designer sofas of the 20th century.

    This is as rare as it gets.
