Very Rare Carved Wood Otto Wretling Sofa with Shearling Upholstery
78 3⁄4” wide x 30” deep x 34” high (Seat height 19”)
Otto Wretling was a Swedish artist, designer, and furniture maker. He and his brother took over their father’s paint company in Umeå, Sweden and in 1905 expanded it to include furniture. Eventually, all five of his children and his wife contributed to the ongoing of Firma Otto Wretling för modern rumskonst (The Otto Wretling Firm for Modern Room Art).
This three-seat sofa with its hand-carved frame (note the pine needles and pinecones, the stylized elephant toe feet) is not often available on the market. We have restored this fine example with curly shearling.
