Amazing Vintage Mid-century Modern Jens Risom Sofa



Mid-Century Modern Jens Risom Sofa This beautiful mid-century modern gem has been well preserved in an executive office that looked like it was straight out of Mad Men, with shag carpet, floor-to-ceiling mod drapes, Raymor Italian ashtrays, and plenty of rich walnut. The office was said to have been rarely used, which is evident by the condition of this sofa's original upholstery. The nubby material is an orange and green blend with no tears, rips, or loose seams. The sculptural sofa sits on walnut base that is visible on all sides. The single tufted seat cushion, wedged arms, and clean lines give this piece a distinctive look. The sofa is in overall great condition, however the foam in the cushions has somewhat hardened. It is very usable in it's current condition but would be more comfortable with the foam replaced. The only other condition issue is a missing button cap on the underside of the seat cushion. This could easily be repaired during the foam replacement if desired. Otherwise, it never needs to show. If you choose to reupholster, the possibilities are endless. Here's an example of the same sofa after reupholstery. Danish-born Jens Risom was classmates with Hans Wegner and Borge Mogensen at the Copenhagen School of Industrial Arts and Design before teaming with Hans Knoll to launch the Knoll Furniture Company, designing three quarters of the company's inaugural line. In 1946 he launched his own firm, Jens Risom Design, which he ran for twenty-five years, promoting Scandinavian design in home furniture to the broader American public. In 1961, Risom was one of six furniture designers featured in a profile in Playboy magazine, along with George Nelson, Edward Wormley, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, and Charles Eames. One of Risom's executive office chairs became famous when Lyndon B. Johnson chose to use it in the Oval Office. Many of his furniture designs are considered modern classics, and his furniture is on display at the Museum of Modern Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, and the Cooper–Hewitt, National Design Museum. Dimensions are: Length - 90" • Width/Depth - 33.5" • Back Height - 27.5" • Arm Height - 21.5" Pickup is available and I'll happily work with a freight company of your choosing should you wish to have it delivered.
