Vintage Art Deco curved shell-shaped settee
Elegantly curved 1940s kidney/shell shaped settee made using traditional, very robust, upholstery methods.
This shapely settee would work brilliantly in a bay window. Or perhaps it would be best appreciated in the middle of a room so it could be viewed from all angles. The medium height of the back means that it is ideal to divide a room.
The dimensions of the settee, and the two armchairs which make up the suite it belongs to, all offer a great amount of seating for the space that they take up.
The settee offers low but excellently roomy and supportive seating. The shape of the seat ensures good lower back support and a firm seat is created by the springs. The coil springs push against the seat so it where it has gentle curves it will always have gentle curves.
Curved Art Deco settees like this work wonderfully at parties as guests are gently turned in towards each other.
The settee stands on dark oak legs and sits firmly on the floor. The legs are at the front of the chair are large buns whereas at the back they are curved sections of solid oak.
Condition: Good with some signs of age and use. Original golden green colour draylon upholstery is in used but fair condition considering the vintage of this piece. Note that an area at the end of the sofa on the otter arm has become a different colour due to less exposure to sunlight over the years (photographed). The area which is lighter in colour appears more noticeably in the photograph than in real life.
