Mid-Century Armless Sofa

Mid-Century Armless Sofa


This armless sofa doesn’t have a maker’s mark on it so we don’t know who made it. It is a wooden frame, probably walnut, with a spring mounted underconstruction by a company called Sengweb. Sengweb made these types of underseat supports for use by various furniture makers in the 1930s through 1960s. The spring supported underseating was touted for its lack of sag and keeping seats comfortable.

The back of the sofa is a walnut beam attached to the base by 2 metal brackets. The legs are beautifully tapered with gold caps on the tips in typical 1960s mid-century style. The seat cushion is one long cushion, making it comfortable if used as a bed with the back cushions are removed. The two back cushions are thick and comfortable. The fabric is almost certainly original in a blue, green, gray and red plaid.

This piece is in very good vintage condition. The fabric is in excellent condition with strong color and practically no signs of wear. The sofa base has two repairs, done by a previous owner at some point. The repairs were to fix two cracks on opposite front and back corners. The repairs while not visible with the cushions on, are well done and the base is left sturdy and strong. It is very comfortable, notably due to the Sengweb seat support.

It measures 75 inches in length by 32 deep by 29 to the top of the back. The seat depth is 22 ½ inches with a seat height of 17 and 14 inches from seat to the top of the back cushion.
