Sofa with wooden frame upholstered with polyurethane foam and velvet covering.
Designed in 1923 by Pierre Chareau. Chareau placed two of these sofas in the Living Room of his celebrated Maison de Verre. Chareau originally produced this sofa in velvet with a contrasting seat and back covered in either leather in tapestry. In the Maison de Verre the sofas have tapestry seats and backs based on a design by Jean Lurcat. The sofa was clearly designed to be used as a kind of double chaise longue. Because of the contoured ends, two persons tend to face each other, facilitating conversation.
