Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard MINERVA sofa | 4 seater
Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard designed teak framed MINERVA 4 seat daybed settee with sprung cushion seat and back rest.
All the cushions have had the old foam replaced with new and re-upholstered using CAPTURE fabric from Denmark.
The fabric is made of 85% New Zealand wool & 15% polyamide giving the fabric a superiors strength and durable life span.
The lenght of this sofa means it can be used as a statement piece in your lounge and with the back rest cushions removed, occasional bed.
The tapering teak legs unscrew from the frame and the back rest & arm rests detatch so that the sofa can be flat packed for easy transport / delivery.
Condition. Teak frame is very good with lovely patina.
It has undergone TOTAL restoration after being unloved in a garage for 25+ years and spattered with paint and moths eating holes in the old covers.!
Frame marked with GOLD france & son label
