We are 2 women that restore historic homes and buy, restore and sell Mid Century Modern furniture and accessories.
This is an extremely rare sofa set designed by Walter P. Baermann for Prestige Corporation in the mid 1950's. The set was designed with a fiberglass and metal frame which includes a removable fabric as did all of the pieces Baermann designed for this line. The sofa has amazing Atomic era curves with low profile angled seating and angled, tapered legs as well. These are all original, the fabric is in excellent shape with no imperfections to note. We have replaced the foam with medium density (the softest furniture foam you can buy) which gives the seat a medium/firm sit that will break-in with use. These can be arranged in a number of ways. Amazing Mid Century set!
Each piece is:
Length - 50"
Width - 31"
Height - 31.5"
Seat Height - 16.5"
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.
