Still Sitting Pretty, 70 Years Later
Furniture & Lighting
We’re besotted with this exquisitely tailored sofa designed by architects Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen more than 70 years ago. Reissued just last year by Danish brand &Tradition, the Mayor sofa was part of a suite of furnishings created for Denmark’s Søllerød City Hall (also designed by Jacobsen and Lassen, and completed in 1942), who collaborated on a great many architectural and design projects. We like the unusually formal elegance of Mayor’s solid oak frame, high back, and snugly fitted upholstery; and we’re especially bedazzled by this dusty pink, one of 4 different colors in which the Mayor sofa has been reissued.
