Rare George Smith “Standard-Arm” Large 2-Seat Sofa in “Toile Du Jouy” Linen
Price - £2400 SOLD
On offer on this occasion is, quite possibly, the only sofa you might ever need to buy.
This is an ultra-rare opportunity to acquire what is, unequivocally, the best of the best, it being a most spectacular, used George Smith Signature “Standard-Arm” Fixed-Back, Large 2-Seat Sofa, dressed in their breathtaking, peerless “Toile Du Jouy” Printed-Linen fabric, and with hand-turned Mahogany legs with brass castors.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this listing, George Smith pieces are the epitome of classic English furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.
In a world of temporary pleasures, George Smith create beautiful furniture built to last a lifetime, with there being no finer, or more beautifully appointed, example of their work than this.
This piece is in spectacular, original condition, having seen regular employment since its costly purchase many-moons ago. As the images will attest, it is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage and, having aged gracefully, is as effortlessly-elegant as is possible to imagine, with the colours a little more relaxed and demure than they would have been the day it left George Smith’s Cramlington Factory.
That said, there is some noticeable wear to the folds to the fabric on the curve of the armrests (please view the image provided to illustrate) so, for those who demand precision, structure and perfection, this nonchalant, natural piece may not quite meet such lofty requirements. However, for someone looking for a sofa of peerless quality and execution possessing huge personality and impact to position at the heart of their home, this handsome brute is nothing short of heaven-sent!
Please view the images provided closely to confirm its impeccable condition and majestic appearance. Supremely vintaged at present, this already-elegant covering is guaranteed to become more handsome through the acquisition of further marks, wear and patina across the passing years.
This sofa’s dimensions are an impressive H-86cm, W-166cm and D-109cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic English design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously-sprung backrest and feather-filled seat cushions, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Not only does it possess an aesthetic to die for, but it is soooooooooooooooooooooo comfortable too! Truly first-class accommodation.
Costing in excess of £8000 when new, it represents spectacular value for money, and we have no doubt it will serve and delight its new owner for many years to come.
Delivery of this piece to most UK mainland addresses will cost £120, and can be organised on behalf of the winning bidder upon request using one of our hand-picked panel of specialist, fully-insured independent furniture couriers.
