Buttoned-Up Mid-Century Style
The Abby Sofa exudes distinct 1950s character and faithfully captures the essence of mid-20th century soft furnishings. Featuring thick padded seat and back cushions, upholstered in a chic microtweed with classic tufting, the Abby Sofa is atop solid tapered wood legs. Three guests sit comfortably across two extra-wide seat and reversible back cushions and are well-supported by the Abby's hardwood inner-frame and sinuous spring system.
Since the 20th century, tufted upholstery has grown in popularity. Countless centuries old, tufting is a technique that has been embraced by notable designers of modern furniture, from the Bauhaus period to present-day. From Le Corbusier and Van Der Rohe to Hans Wegner and Ducaroy, the times have proven that clean lines and accented button tufting never goes out of style. While many of the distinguished works produced by such makers remain available today at a premium, the Abby Sofa provides an iconic look at an unparalleled value.
