Finn Juhl Model 57 sofa

Model_57

A strange design that probably looked ever stranger 50 years ago – the Model 57 sofa.

Designed by Finn Juhl, it received a muted response on its debut in 1957, but time has been kind to it – indeed, this sofa is up there with any contemporary piece. On the technical side, it has hand-woven spring inserts, fabric or leather upholstery and legs of brushed stainless steel with wooden toes.

Sadly, it doesn’t sell at a 1950s price – in 208 it retails for £4,643.
