Rare rosewood and leather sofa, very comfortable and in great condition, Don Shoemaker .
A stunning vintage 75″ safari sofa in solid rosewood and leather.
US- born Don Shoemaker has created a sculptural masterpiece with this sofa that we have in our collection at the moment together with a pair of matching chairs and table.
The bold design is perfectly executed in exotic timber with a vibrant grain and constructed with pegs to allow the sofa to flat pack (hence Safari suited).
Artistically sculpted exotic cocobolo rosewood put together in an eye catching and interesting biomorphic form, this model shows the rare arm-rests with the volute detail, which makes it stand out even more.
Thick hide leather and exquisite leather details give it a distinct flavor.
The thick black leather hides used for the removable seat cushions and the seat back sling are complemented with leather buttons connecting the sling to the frame of the chair.
The sofa is in very good vintage condition, the frames are all clean, sturdy and sound, with only some minor surface wear here and there commensurate with age.
One part on the back has been patched.
Dimensions: 75″ x 33.5″ x 34″ / seat height is 15″.
