A truly sensational sofa designed in the 1960's by Illum Wikkelso for Niels Eilersen.
The framework is constructed from beautiful teak which has amazing grains and is in astonishing original condition. There are a couple of very minor dints on one of the back pieces as can be seen in one of the photos, but other than this, the condition of the wood is almost flawless, quite incredible considering it's age.
We have carefully cleaned, nourished, oiled, waxed and polished the wood ensuring it retains its natural beauty, but to give it a lovely glow once again.
New pirelli webbing has been fitted to the seats using the dowels/holes as is the original design, and then covered using a new quilted bottom cloth.
The original leather cushions have aged superbly too, with a lovely patina. Having been carefully cleaned and nourished, the condition of the leather is absolutely terrific. There are a few places with slighly more wear as shown in the last photograph, however they aren't as noticeable in person as they appear in the images and are mentioned only for completeness. The cushions can also be arranged so that these marks are not visible. The foam in the seat cushions have been replaced with brand new high density foam, and the back cushions have also been replaced with bespoke made luxury duck feather filled cushions as per the original design.
