OW149-2 Colonial Sofa

Ole Wanscher, 1964 | 2015


Designed in 1964 by Ole Wanscher, the Colonial Sofa was reintroduced at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2015. The name of the series, Colonial, refers to Wanscher's fascination with 18th century English furniture design. A sofa with a refined expression, the flexibility of the Colonial is accentuated with loose cushions and a freely moving seat with a cotton webbing base resting atop of sturdy double center legs. The Colonial Sofa is available only as a two seater, and is part of the Colonial series that includes a chair, coffee table, and footrest.
