Reluctantly letting go of this gorgeous, original late 1960’s/ early 1970’s German sofa/ daybed. Over 50 years old, this item is in great condition for it’s age. Made from light wood and a burnt orange, red patterned wool mix fabric, this sofa had the back reupholstered and replaced with black fabric in 2016. The spring base folds down to convert into a single bed, which can be quickly set up for overnight guests. The base of the sofa also has room for storage, so perfect for tucking away a pillow and blanket. If you’re into mid 20th century style, then this would be a brilliant addition to any home, especially an office or spare room. MEASUREMENTS (TAKEN AS BEST AS I CAN). LENGTH: 194cm/ 76.5. WIDTH: Approx 76cm/ 30. DEPTH OF SEAT: 51cm/ 20. HEIGHT: 75cm/ 29.5. HEIGHT OF SEAT: 40cm/ just under 16. There is general wear and tear which I have tried to reflect in the photos. Some frays and snags to the fabric, some fading and worn areas, a scratch to the wooden arm. Overall, due to the vibrancy of the pattern, I don’t think they stand out too much but it’s important to note this item is in used vintage condition. The mechanism that folds the sofa down into a bed can be a little temperamental, but once you get the hang of how to coax it into place it’s fine. There is a smell to the under storage area of the bed. I don’t know what it is – whether it’s from years in storage, or general age of the item. It can give items stored in there an’old’ odour. Some febreeze usually does the trick to get rid of it. In general, for over half a decade old it’s in good nick. As with all vintage furniture, it’s important to accept there will be general damage and quirks to each piece. I have tried to represent the true colour as best as possible, but please take into consideration that cameras and computer screens will alter how it is presented. As this item is over 50 years old there are no fabric labels or modern fire safety information. As always with vintage furniture, please be cautious when using it and make sure you neither smoke, light candles or place near open fireplaces.
