Josef Frank Reupholstered Daybed in Burgundy Fabric
Josef Frank, daybed '775', fabric and wood, Sweden, 1938.
Completely restored and reupholstered chaise lounge designed by Josef Frank in 1938. The piece has been reupholstered in a burgundy-purple, high quality fabric. The tufted seat and backrest give this daybed its comfortable appearance, as it is as well. Comfort was always Frank's main concern. He believed that a chair above all else should be comfortable, and that appearances had little to do with the development of form. As long as an object was functional it was still viable. The daybed is swooping and elegant as Josef Frank designed his furniture to offer relief from the stresses of everyday life.
