2. Grete Jalk Model 118/3 Sofa made by France and Sons

Preview number 2 is a special one for the design enthusiasts out there. A rare find, this all original, teak 3-seat sofa was designed by Grete Jalk and manufactured by France and Sons in the 1960s. France and Sons produced some of the most sought after designed mid-century modern pieces and had a large roster of the most coveted designers from that era. If you like design and are a mid-century modern enthusiast, this is definitely the piece for you. The cushions are all original and in excellent condition considering their age. France and sons were known for producing cushions with springs in them for added comfort. It was part of their legacy as a mattress company in their early days. It is rare to find a sofa with these cushions still in tact. There is some sun fading to the upholstery, but the original 100% wool fabric is in excellent condition with no tears or runs. The sofas clean lines, curved back and curved arms are examples of the designer's expertise in simplicity and curvature. Grete Jalk was a rare female in a male dominated industry. She took inspiration from design greats Alvar Aalto and Charles and Ray Eames. Her furniture designs were produced by a number of celebrated Danish manufacturers including Poul Jeppesen, Fritz Hansen, Glostrup, and France & Søn. 75"w x 28"d x 30"h. The sofa will be available for sale at the antique show and then online thereafter. For more information on the antique show itself please visit the website http://www.ottawaantiqueandvintagemarket.ca/
