Grand Hotel Duomo Milano Two-Seater Sofa
Gio Ponti and Melchiorre Bega, 1950s
Italian Two-Seater Sofa In Red Corduroy Velvet by Grand Hotel Duomo Milano, 1950s
Extremely rare red corduroy sofa from fifties, coming from Grand Hotel del Duomo in Milan, design by Gio Ponti and Melchiorre Bega, like all the other hotel furnishings. Two-seater structure with armrest and a high comfortable back side, all covered in its original red corduroy, with a single line of stiching on it and a wide curved shape for the headrest. It stays on four wooden turned legs, with a really sturdy structure. Generally in good condition with original fabric, a bit dirty on the middle part of the headrest, where the colour is a bit lighter than in the rest of the sofa. Anyway is a mix of a neverending beauty and rareness.
