Big Sofa Book

The Big Sofa Book

Surprise Surprise: A week after I received the book  More than 999 new and forgotten (arm) chairs, I received The Big Sofa Book from Peter van Zoetendaal. Thank you, Peter!

Another 1,000 or so sofas to feature here.

And you know what? Each time I try to source an armchair or sofa I discover one or two more Armchairs or sofas I’d never heard of to show here……So be prepared to see another 2 to 4,000 chairs and/or sofas featured here. Imagine ultimately leading to 10,000 pieces of seating furniture and related matters featured here.

I’ll number the sofas I take from the Big Sofa Book and wil add them to the new Big Sofa Book category.

Samspel Sofa by Carl Malmsten

Bukowski auctioned this Samspel Sofa by Carl Malmsten

Estimate: 20 000 – 25 000 SEK 1 929 – 2 411 EUR
Hammer price: 50 000 SEK

I may be wrong, but I believe Samspel means “play together”, a nice name for a sofa.
