Theo Ruth for Artifort Sofa in Original Striped Upholstery


Theo Ruth for Artifort, sofa, in original black and white fabric, wood, The Netherlands, 1950s.

This sofa is an iconic example of an Artifort sofa designed by Theo Ruth in the 1950s. The sofa is on the one hand simplistic, with elegant, subtle lines. On the other hand, the settee embodies a certain theatrical aesthetic with armrests flowing outwards and a buttoned back. The settee is equipped with wooden feet that are narrow and conically tapered. The fabric of both seat and back shows a black and white asymmetric, almost organic stripes. The armrests are all black. The sofa is still in its original upholstery, meaning it does show signs of wear and use, adding to the character and uniqueness of the sofa.
