A beautifully balanced design. The influence of English--especially Regency--furniture on Wanscher and his teacher Kaare Klint is quite evident in the form of this sofa. The high arms slope gracefully down from a wide, smooth back. We have reupholstered in a soft, shiitake-colored wool, and added a down-filled seat cushion. The legs are Brazilian rosewood with an elegantly expressive grain.
