This unusual sofa was created in the early 1950s during the rise of the California Modernist Movement. When Joseph Eichler and Richard Neutra designing trend-setting architecture, Mel Bogart was the furniture and accessories that would fill these beautiful homes. This sofa has a recess on the frame that allows you to pull it out from under the backrest so that the surface will serve as a daybed for napping or accommodating extra guests. This piece was acquired from the original owners and is still in very good original condition. Even the foam is still resilient. The flat bar steel frame is very sturdy and the sofa itself is quite solid and overall the piece is definitely heirloom quality. Measure: The extended depth of the daybed is 43.75″.
