eBay watch: Lurashell space age sofa and armchairs


We rarely mention items with big price tags in our eBay spot, unless they are particularly rare or interesting. This Lurashell sofa and armchairs certainly tick the boxes on both of those counts.

At first glance, you might think this is a Joe Colombo design, looking not unlike his more common Elda armchair. But this is a more obscure design, although one that was seen in futuristic TV shows and movies in the 1970s. The rarely-seen Star Maidens is cited in the listing.

It still has the space age look the TV and movie people were attracted by back in the day, but its appeal now is more likely to be for anyone looking to recreate the late '60s or 1970s in the modern era.

For your money, you get one sofa and two armchairs, a mix of fibreglass and what looks like a black leather, although we suspect it is synthetic. Condition is described as good, with 'normal' patina to the frame through age.

If you want it as the centre piece of your living room, the price right now is a 'Buy It Now' of £3,641.10 - and delivery is offered worldwide.
