Originally created in the mid 1950’s, the Platform Sofa is comfortable and stunning from the front, the back and the sides. The sofa is architecturally suspended over a solid American Ash wood platform base deriving its structural inspiration from the concept of tree house living. The design of the platform sofa is minimal and sleek with clean lines. A modernist 3 panel fixed back and comfortably placed arms round upwards from a curve at the base. One of the intriguing differences you will find in the design of the Platform Sofa is the expansive wood platform that literally suspends the sofa from the surface of the floor.
An icon of mid century modern sofa design, the Platform sofa is well known for its architectural wooden base “platform”. Originating from the concept of a tree house, the platform is substantial in dimension and created from solid varnished but unstained American Ash timbers in their natural color. This hefty architectural element features a specific lean back angle pitch and spans the front, the sides, underneath and artistically extends upwards supporting a significant portion of the back. The width of the wooden frame exceeds that of the width of the upholstered sofa thus creating interesting angled space in the back between the frame and the sofa at the base. As it moves up the back or the sofa, the frame then angles back in toward the sofa meeting and cradling the rear of the sofa on each end. The wooden platform is a solid and architecturally stunning element from all angles allowing you to place the sofa at any location in the room.
The 3 individual midcentury modern seat cushion design feature a multi-density foam core but you may notice they are plump and amply overstuffed with down feathers. A richly comfortable seating experience results from such a streamlined mid-century modern design. The platform is a substantial modernist sofa design for a relatively small investment. From the wood frame, to the down feather stuffed cushions to the stitching of the upholstery, the platform sofa is crafted entirely by hand.
Twill is an interwoven knit fabric. The thread takes turns in an over and under weave forming a crooked yet overall lineal rectangle pattern that can be discerned at close range. The pattern exists but appears somewhat random when viewed from a normal distance. Vintage Tailored Twill features a finer, tightly tailored flat weave appearance.
Vintage Tailored Twill provides perhaps a more refined, tailored appearance than that of a typical coarse twill. It relies on the multi-tone nature of the fabric strands themselves to provide the appearance of depth of texture.
