CHARLES FRANCE MODEL 168/3 SOFA FOR FRANCE & SON
Extremely handsome and very seldom seen Model 168/3 sofa Designed by the boss of France & Son, Charles ‘Fearnley’ France in 1962. The design is based almost entirely on a previous Grete Jalk design for France & Son with the addition of some upholstered armrests. These additions make it an even more attractive design in our opinion and won Charles France a design award for his efforts.
Produced from solid teak with original foam seat cushions and new foam back cushions. We have upholstered in a wonderful dark teal wool from Bute fabrics, this colour is very very close to an original colour offered by France & Son at the time and it compliments the teak frame perfectly. Unfortunately our camera cannot reproduce this colour as it turns out blue in the images. Do get in contact if you would like a fabric sample.
A single armchair of the same design is also available in a separate listing.
