Swedish Modern Sofa with Cherry Wood Legs, Sweden 1950s

$ 11,400
  • Description
    Designed in the early phase of what we know today as mid-century modern, this charming sofa is a unique evidence of how traditional Swedish craftsmanship was brought into modernism. A functional anchor piece is all that is needed to introduce mid-century modern furniture to any interior, and this three-seater sofa is perfect to fill that role.

    Many of the most prominent Swedish manufacturers were located in Småland in the south of Sweden where many glass manufacturers and furniture producers still reside. Among them was Berga Möbler creating models in the characteristic Swedish Modern style that this sofa evokes. The Swedish perspective on cabinetmaking is exceptional, which is why the country’s cabinetmakers’ craft remains world-famous. As an essentially Swedish Modern piece, this sofa is built around the core characteristics of the style: gently rounded edges, solid wooden legs, and a generous fully upholstered body. The design also possesses the elegant homely curviness, an aesthetic balance that is only seemingly easy to achieve, but this sofa exudes it. This is the result of the gently rounded back and arms, the soft, premium upholstery, and the three large tufted buttons that define the backrest. There is something more inviting about rounded shapes, which is true for the legs as well. The splayed, dark-stained cherry wood legs further add to the modern, organic feel, balancing out the voluptuous profile of the sofa. In combination with the unadorned styles of mid-century design, this sofa brings together the best attributes of the era. In the absence of ornamentation, the three large tufted buttons on the back stand out, creating depth as they sink into the smooth, elegant fabric.

    Swedish master cabinetmakers have been creating products that last for a lifetime and become heirlooms naturally. Crafted with precision from solid wood, finished with attention to detail and care for the aesthetic dimension as well, this sofa stands the test of time thanks to both its visual and material quality.
