Description

This impressive sofa is raised on a linear oak base and has a lightness of form rarely matched in an object of this scale. The vintage leather is thick and supple with a rich patina that adds to depth and character of this refined offering. We love the clean lines and sleek profile of this stunning piece. It's an enduring design that will make a statement in any contemporary living space.

Designer John Mortensen began his career in 1959 after graduating from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and earning highest distinctions. Mortensen started out as a cabinet maker for Christensen & Larsen before setting up his own design practice and designing dining, office, and living room furniture for premium Danish and international furniture manufacturers.

Throughout his career, Mortensen specialized in woodwork, creating each of his prototypes in his personal workshop before sending them on for production. His cabinetmaking background was perfect for creating wooden furniture with sophistication and finesse. Today his designs have become coveted mid-century modern classics.
