Mid Century 1970's Low Profile Sofa by Raimondo
Low profile sofa designed by Giuseppe Raimondo for Gufram in Northern Italy in the early 1970's. The original design was by Tobia Scarpa for Knoll known as the Bastiano line in the late 60's, however when Knoll bought out Gavina there were still a number of orders open with Stendig for the Bastiano seating models. Since Knoll was the sole importer for the Bastiano series, Stendig had to make the switch over to Giuseppe Raimondo to fill the remaining orders. They were only available in rosewood, teak and oak. This sofa (as well as the matching pair of chairs we have) are the oak ones that someone has added a distressed black stain to. The original rubber loop coils have been replaced by strapping for the seat support but can easily be put back. The cushions are brand new and covered in a soft midnight blue fabric. *Note that the color of the cushions are all the same. They look different in some photos just because of the lighting**. This sofa is wide, low and extremely comfortable. We also have the matching 2 chairs in another listing, if you purchase all 3 pieces the bundled price is $1400.

Local pickup in the Knoxville, TN area. For shipping we are happy to provide a couple quotes from our regular shippers.
Unlike most Mid Century dealers, we go over every inch of our pieces before they leave our showroom. Wood pieces undergo a 5 step restoration process to clean, nourish, remove scuffing/paint, hydrate, and bring out the original finish. All joints are tightened, drawers are cleaned, missing hardware replaced, and all metal/chrome polished. We keep our items as authentic as possible. In our opinion sanding and staining a designer Mid Century piece will only diminish the value as the vintage authenticity and character is lost. We never pass the restoration costs onto our customers.
Upholstered items are professionally cleaned and new dust fabric added underneath as needed. If the original fabric is not in near perfect condition then we will reupholster the item in a high quality period appropriate fabric.
We never sell Mid Century reproductions. All of our items are 40-70 years old and in excellent condition, however some vintage character from use should be expected. We have very high standards at Dirty Girls Restoration and take our time with every piece we sell.
