Illum Wikkelsø Capella Two-seater Leather Sofa
One of Danish furniture's greatest kept secrets, Illum Wikkelsø is known for his simple and functional designs that are inspired by natural organic forms. Wikkelsø drew inspiration from the Danish landscape and with great attention to craftsmanship, designed furniture pieces recognisable for their clean lines and soft waves. The rich, organic quality of his designs affirms his status as an active proponent of Scandinavian modernism in the postwar era.
This absolutely stunning Brazilian rosewood 'Capella', or Model 4, two-seater leather sofa was designed in 1958 by Illum Wikkelso for Niels Eilersen, Denmark. The rosewood frame has beautiful grain patterns, and the paddle arm joinery is piece of art. The interior of the original black leather cushions, and the seat webbing have been replaced, and the leather and frame have been cleaned and oiled.
This stunning vintage Danish sofa would make a great addition to any home.
