Illum Wikkelsø for N. Eilersen, two-seat sofa, red leather, rosewood, designed by Denmark, 1959.
This strong little sofa is one of the Classic designs by the Dane Illum Wikkelsø. The angular rosewood frame has six legs and and open back featuring four rosewood slats including the top one. The armrests, also made out of wood, are slightly curved and widened to provide comfort. The original red leather forms a warm combination with the grains of the wood in both the cushions and in a patch of leather on the side of each armrest.
