MID CENTURY MODERN SOFABED
Up for auction is a superbly stylish mid century modern sofa-bed manufactured by Scandart.
Scandart based in High Wycombe along side other companies such as Ercol and G Plan in the 1950's - 60's. As their name suggests they produced Scandinavian /Danish inspired furniture of high quality and retailed in relatively small numbers making Key piece's increasingly rare and desirable.
The Sofa-bed has a distinctive danish design with a solid Teak and Elm frame which has been restored where needed and polished showing the beautiful golden tone & grain. Great mid- century modern design with all emphasis on form and function, with a low slung feel and upturned curved arms typical of this era.
The sofabed has brand new upholstery in a striking pistachio green/mustard fabric, the wonderful vibrant colour compliments the restored Teak and Elm frame beautifully. All covers are zipped allowing them to be laundered when necessary and all foam inners have been replaced with brand new poly fibre wrapped cushions adhering to current fire regs.
The rear of the back rest has been upholstered in the same fabric allowing the sofa to be used at an angle or where the back of the sofa may be visible. The seat cushion rests on rubber webbing making it extremely comfortable for sitting or sleeping on.
The sofa has unique lift and slide hinged action to switch from sofa to bed, simply lift the front seat frame and back rest to allow the frame to raise out of the locking hinge allowing it to slide down into the bed position. The Sofa is in great condition with only light wear commensurate with age and use.
Also shown in the photo's is a Teak small boy/chest of drawers and a simular Teak sideboard by Mcintosh which are available in my other auctions - please see my other items.
A rare find! the angular design, simplistic lines and perfect proprtions commands a presence all of its own, a really nice retro piece.
