Roche Sofa,Le Corbusier Choc Brown Premium Leather
What started as a way to make sure my great grandmother Eleanor's things had new loving homes...has now become a passion for all things with a history
This is from the KARDIEL website/store where this was purchased in May of 2014 $1,700.00. First 3 photos are from the website. The sofa is in very good condition with a few tears on the underside of the seat cushions, not on the leather, but only on the material on the underside of the cushions. See photos.
Very comfortable but with a new baby, we need to re-adjust our lifestyle.
Regarding weight...This is a very light-weight sofa. I don't have the exact weight but without the cushions I can pick the frame up by myself.
THIS IS A REPRODUCTION OF A ROCHE MID CENTURY MODERN SOFA
Kardiel offers the highest quality reproduction of this series on the market. We specialize and understand fully the intricacies of the original design. From the supple Genuine Top Grain Premium Soft Aniline Leather to the plump generously filled and wrapped cushions, our full list of features means you don’t have to settle for an inferior reproduction. You wont find a solid wood frame as the original was not built with one. The cushions are meant to take on a somewhat plump stuffed appearance verses a hard square cubed look. The base below the cushions features a webspring platform for added comfort. The details in scale are important with all reproduction pieces and Roche is no exception. Compare this reproduction anywhere for its highest standard of exacting detail. You may find the accuracy of this reproduction second to none.Roche is a well recognized modernist icon originally designed in 1928 for the Maison La Roche house in Paris. Roche, like the original design was revolutionary in its making as it was not built over a wooden frame. The entire sofa is built around the cushions with a metal exoskeleton and base network "spring webbing". Remarkably comfortable, Roche was appropriately dubbed “cushion baskets.”
