Alvar Aalto model 544 sofa

click to enlarge

Created in 1932 for a specific architectural purpose, designer Alvar Aalto conceptualized sofa 544 for the famed Paimio Sanatorium. Clean lines, a beautiful birch frame and comfortable cushioning produced a truly stunning sofa that was immediately added to Aalto’s permanent furniture collection. Here we have an amazingly rare pre-WW2 example that we sourced from the States in super all original condition. The Birch arms have mellowed to a beautiful golden colour and although the upholstery does have some marks is completely original. We can arrange for reupholstery but have decided to leave this decision to the buyer as we did not want to distract from its authenticity.
