Edward Wormley for Dunbar Four-Seat Sofa in Off-White Upholstery
Edward J. Wormley for Dunbar, sofa, fabric and wood, United States, circa 1970
The white upholstery is a striking combination with the darkened frame that is especially visible at the back where the legs develop to the upper part of the back in a graceful manner. The designer decided to remain modest with decoration by implementing tufted buttons placed equidistant on a horizontal line, accentuating the clear, straight lines of the overall design.
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 a high-quality line, that was also available for the masses.
