Timeless Luxury: Antique Leather Sofas with Character

Antique leather sofas are a timeless and luxurious addition to any home. They offer a unique combination of comfort, style, and history. And when it comes to antique leather sofas, there are few names more respected than Arne Norell. Norell was a Swedish designer who was known for his simple, elegant, and functional designs. He was particularly fond of using leather in his furniture, and his sofas are renowned for their high quality and craftsmanship.

A good pair of mid 20th century Swedish “Merkur” sofas by Arne Norell is a perfect example of the designer’s work. We have a beautiful pair in our collection. These sofas have a timeless classic design, with clean lines and a simple silhouette. They are upholstered in cognac coloured buffalo leather with a beautiful natural patina. The sofas are in good condition with normal signs of use and patina on the leather consistent with age and use. This only adds to their character and charm.

A pair of these mid 20th century pieces would be a stunning addition to any living room. They will provide a comfortable and stylish place to relax and entertain guests. And they would be a cherished heirloom for generations to come. Head to our antique seating section to have a look at the stunning pair.
