This cherry and walnut sofa is one of Wharton Esherick’s most accomplished designs—in terms of both form and function. The curved shape facilitates conversation and viewing. As the temperature and humidity conditions around this piece have changed over time, the red-painted splines have been revealed between the boards. This is one of only three free-standing hand-crafted sofas that Esherick ever made. A one-of-a-kind, it's signed and dated 1968.
A key proponent of the American Studio Craft movement, Esherick (1887-1970) was an American sculptor and woodworker who's known especially for his intricately crafted, highly sculptural furniture designs.
