Mid-Century Aqua Sitting Room (SOLD)

Details of each item

SOFA AND CHAIR: Archetypal items with the fashionable low-slung, squared-off styling so popular during the 1950's-1970's. This high-quality, matching suite is upholstered in a soft boucle fabric, and has tapered brown plastic legs (although one at the rear of the sofa was missing so we added a wooden replacement). Since we have never come across such a set, we believe it is quite rare. The sofa comes with two handmade cushions.

SIDEBOARD: An incredibly finely-crafted piece, presumably handmade by a talented carpenter, sometime mid-century. Door fronts from two different woods, with fine black incised verticals, plus black knobs and legs - a really, really, stylish item! All doors open, revealing one long, central shelf. On top sits a plastic plant in a wooden flower pot, plus two finely-turned, wooden pitchers/jugs.

COFFEE TABLE: A Mattell side table, dating from the same period holds a wooden tray and four wooden glasses.

LAMP: A handmade lamp with wooden base and lampshade made from hand-printed, Indian paper.

RUG: Hand-made from a fabric scrap and a piece felt.

WALLS: Covered in retro-inspired, modern wrapping paper. It has been mounted on two A3 pieces of 5mm thick foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42 x 29.5cm or 11 5/8 x 16 3/8in. On one wall is a postcard print of a still life by Morandi.
