Description

new upholstered
mahogany frame
very good condition
h 72 / w 210 / d 72 cm

Very rare sectional sofa. The newly upholstered set places itself wonderfully in the space. Manufactured by Dunbar.  American Edward Wormleys simple but stunning and outlasting style make this sofa exemplary of his design philosophy. He started working at Dunbar in 1931 which he came to be a household name for, lasting several decades. His work there started going clearly into the style of Mid-century Modern after 1944. T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Paul Mccobb or Estelle & Levine Laverne come to mind when looking at Wormleys pieces.
