Inca Safari Lounge Sofa in Butterscotch Leather by Arne Norell

Inca Safari Lounge Sofa in Butterscotch Leather by Arne Norell

6,475.00

This iconic lounge sofa was produced by the legendary Swedish designer, circa 1960. Realized in hand rubbed beech, the Inca sofa features the clean lines and idiosyncratic details that collectors of Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian furniture prize. The cylindrical legs feature protruding nodules, imbuing the piece with a strong sense of organic modernism. The buttoned cushions, realized in a rich butterscotch leather, are supported on the back and seats by leather panels affixed to the wooden body via straps. These supports offer the inflection of refined utilitarianism, perhaps suggesting the chic safari aesthetic from where the name of the sofa derives. This is not only an important and gorgeous piece, but it is exceedingly comfortable, accommodating up to three people with ease. Mint restored condition.
