Brazilian Rosewood Sofa with Navy Velvet Upholstery
Sofa, rosewood, velvet, Brazilian design, European execution, 1960s.
This settee is executed in Brazilian rosewood and velvet and holds several well-constructed details such as the slatted back and the use of slender and delicate slats of rosewood that are wide but thin and therefore give the sofa an open and strong feeling. It is remnant of the sturdy, robust Brazilian furniture but with an European Minimalist twist. The navy colored velvet upholstery matches very well with the dark grains and flames of the rosewood. It is likely that this sofa is designed by a Brazilian designer and manufactured in Europe.
