On offer on this occasion is superb, beautifully-presented example of the iconic 253 “Nest” 2-Seat (but actually seats 3 people in comfort) Sofa, from the world renown Italian furniture house of Cassina.
As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in this Piero Lissoni masterpiece, Cassina pieces are the epitome of contemporary European furniture design, are of peerless quality, and exhibit detailing and execution of an unrivalled standard.
In a world of temporary pleasures, Cassina create beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever.
Inferior-quality imitations of this legendary piece are easily and cheaply acquired but the genuine article, particularly dressed in this most stunning and tactile high-grade woven fabric option in a demure, versatile neutral Pale-Cream hue, are as rare as Hen’s teeth! Spectacularly sought-after as, whilst being as robust and hard-wearing as rhino skin, its softness and texture is simply divine to the touch. The perfect blend of luxury and practicality.
This sofa is in wonderful, well-maintained condition, having seen light, infrequent use in its previous home, and is almost entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its hugely handsome order reflects the TLC and considerate use afforded it in the past but, as you would think normal when considering the nature and colour of this particular fabric covering, it does possess the odd visible mark to the seat and armrests as you would expect.
Most/all of these marks would be removed should this piece benefit from a full professional clean (usefully, all of the covers are removable and dry/wet cleanable, and we can organise this on behalf of the buyer for £75) prior to shipping so, whilst worthy of mention but, this issue proves to be of modest significance and, rather than being mentioned because it detracts hugely from the impact of the piece, is mentioned purely for the purposes of accuracy.
Having been removed for cleaning on a couple of occasions previously, the frame cover does not fit quite so precisely as when new at present but, with a little time, patience and TLC (as this gorgeous lump deserves), i am sure a correct, accurate fit will be able to be achieved once again!
Should perfection be demanded, Cassina can supply brand-new, fully-tailored replacement covers for this piece in a myriad of fabrics and leathers (expect costs to be north of £2000) or our upholsterer could recover this piece for as little as £1000 inclusive of fabric, with either option offering any buyer the opportunity for this adorable brute to be restored back to its perfect, pin-sharp best if required.
For the avoidance of doubt, please view the numerous images provided to confirm the superb condition and appearance of this piece. As handsome as is possible to imagine contemporary seating to be.
Whilst it could not be considered truly perfect due to the reasons stated above, it is likely to meet the requirements of the most particular of buyers and, for someone looking for a sofa of peerless design and execution to position at the heart of their home, it is truly heaven sent! Without question, this superb sofa possesses all the beauty and majesty you would expect from the finest contemporary furniture money can buy.
Dimensions-wise, the measurements are of the sofa are H- 78cm, W-220cm and D-96cm, and the breathtaking seating position this iconic modern-design creates is enhanced by the use of sumptuously comfortable, generously composite-filled back and seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms.
Costing in excess of £4000 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 sofa 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.
