More Information

On offer on this occasion is a superb, beautifully-presented “253 Nest” 2-Seat Sofa & Footstool in a sublime Italian Velvet fabric in Dark-Grey with Polished-Chrome Framework, manufactured by the leading Italian Furniture House, Cassina.

As you will no doubt be aware by your interest in these pre-eminent Piero Lissoni creations, “253 Nest” seating is the epitome of contemporary European furniture design, is of peerless quality, and exhibits detailing and execution of the highest standard.

In a world of temporary pleasures, Cassina creates beautiful furniture that remains a joy forever. 

Less-elegantly-clad examples of this legendary piece are difficult enough to source, but a beautifully-presented sofa such as this, particularly dressed in this most stunning and tactile high-grade velvet-fabric option in a demure, versatile Dark-Grey hue, is 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 piece is in perfect, fastidiously-maintained condition, having seen light, irregular use in its previous home, and is entirely free from fault, flaw or damage. Its hugely handsome order reflects the TLC and considerate use afforded it in the past, and is as perfect as is possible to imagine.

For the avoidance of doubt, please view the numerous images provided to confirm the sublime condition and appearance of this sofa. A true classic of modern furniture design.

It is certain to meet the requirements of even 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 piece possesses all the beauty and majesty you would expect from one of the most handsome contemporary seating designs ever made.

Dimensions-wise, the measurements of this 2-seat 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 upholstered back and seat cushioning, which leaves you powerless to resist its charms. Not only does it possess an aesthetic to die for, but it is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo comfortable too!

Costing in excess of £8,000 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.
