Vintage original Florence Knoll sofa in heather grey tweed fabric. Although unsigned or tagged, this is 100% knoll, and most likely from the 1980’s. Purchased from an estate along with matching chair and Herman Miller Walnut Conference Table. The construction on this hefty sofa is truly superb. The rigid frame is over-engineered for rigidity and commercial applications. This sexy sleek low profile sofa would play nicely with virtually any home interior, while being industrial enough to last for decades in a high traffic office. This original fabric still looks great, with no rips or punctures, only some very minor pilling. Look close at the tweed fabric and you will see several woven colors. The overall neutral color is actually comprised of yellow, black and grey.
Warmed through color and texture, the Florence Knoll Sofa is a scaled-down translation of the rhythm and proportions of mid-century modern architecture. With a spare, geometric profile—an expression of the rational design approach Florence Knoll learned from her mentor, Mies van der Rohe—the sofa is utterly modern and totally timeless.
Professionally steam cleaned and detailed top to bottom. The chrome base shines brilliantly with only a few minor age-appropriate scuffs.
