Rare Mohair Settee from “The Spanish Set” by Elias Barup
Elias Barup
Fruitwood, mohair
36" high x 55" wide x 30 1/2" deep (seat height 17")
Elias Barup was the first furniture designer for Gärsnäs AB in Sweden. This fantastic settee, which dates from the beginning of his tenure there in the 1930s, is probably modeled on the classic British Knole settee, though the arms are not adjustable.
Recently reupholstered in a pea-green mohair velvet with matching ribbon trim. We have a chair in the same style.
