A simply gorgeous rosewood and leather sofa by Danish master Hans J. Wegner for AP Stolen. Wegner's designs for AP Stolen, including his iconic Papa Bear chair, are some of his finest. This design, has recently been re-issued by Carl Hansen & Søn as the CH163, and for good reason. It is a stunningly elegant, understated but richly detailed design. From the solid rosewood frame to the beautifully worn-in original buffalo leather cushions, this sofa is a head-turner.
We love the circular detail inset into the front of the rosewood arms. Wegner created this solution to hide the fasteners that hold the arm upholstery in place. As with all of Wegner's designs, this sofa looks amazing from all angles and would suit virtually all modern living environments.
The legs and external frame elements are all solid Brazilian rosewood.Solid beech sub-frame with steel bracing and recently replaced webbing supports below quilted deck. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with age-appropriate wear. To note: some tiny paint flecks on the top of the back frame and top of one back cushion. Scuffed area on the back as shown. Otherwise: minor (attractive) wear to the leather. Please see photos.
