Description Otto Wretling was a Swedish artist, designer, and furniture maker. He and his brother took over their father's paint company in Umeå, Sweden and in 1905 expanded it to include furniture. Eventually, all five of his children and his wife contributed to the ongoing of Firma Otto Wretling för modern rumskonst (The Otto Wretling Firm for Modern Room Art). His designs occupy a transitional period between the Jugenstil and Art Deco.

This splended, hand-carved sofa is not often available on the market. We have professionally restored this one, recovering it in short, curly Australian shearling.
Styles / Movements Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts
