Edward Wormley for Dunbar, Janus sofa model 6392, Evolution21 fabric Brazil Blue, mahogany, United States, 1960s.

Wide angled 'Janus' sofa by Edward Wormley. This sofa has a modern shape and sinuous lines which create a comfortable and appealing look. The open structured mahogany base is a new contrast with the bulky look of the seat. The curved shaped of this sofa gives it a more intimate appearance. This is the largest version of the Janus model, which is custom made and very rare.

Edward Wormley (1907-1995) was an American designer. After not finishing his degree due to lack of funds Wormley started to work as an interior designer. In the 1940s, Wormley was hired to work with Dunbar. Their collaboration was a success story as Dunbar incorporated several techniques and aesthetics from European design. It was Wormley's aim to create both a high-quality line that was also available for the masses.

This sofa is in great condition and newly upholstered in Evolution21 Brazil Blue. Please note that we have a smaller 'Janus' sofa in the same fabric in our current collection. For more information we kindly ask you to reach out to our design specialists.
