KLU_sofa-chair_Kroehler-blue_collage_1
DRAMATICALLY REVIVED 1950s KROEHLER SOFA + CHAIR
When you have a reputation for appreciating – and then saving – exceptionally built vintage modern furniture, sometimes things land at your doorstep. A local fan reached out about this sofa and chair set from Kroehler circa 1950s, hoping we could save them. The upholstery on both pieces were worn to the nub. But the frames were built to last, so we took on the challenge. More accurately, we handed the challenge over to our partners at KL Upholstery, which expertly stripped, stuffed and re-skinned these gentle giants using an ocean blue woven fabric with a soft hand feel. They enhanced the original tailoring, including extensive box stitching with button tufts. Now this set is ready for the next voyage.

CON_loveseat_Barcelona_2
BARCELONA STYLE LOVESEAT-SETTEE | $895
Although many think of the Ludwig Mies van der Rohe-designed Barcelona chair (and its siblings) as mid-century modern staples, the iconic design was introduced in 1929. In our book that makes it even more timeless, so we’re happy to offer this loveseat-settee version of it.
