Designed by Smart Furniture
At A Glance:
In the spirit of the Mid-Century Modern design revolution, we're happy to bring our new 1964 Sofa to you. 1964 was the year of My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins, Buffalo Wings, Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are a-Changin" - oh yeah, and the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Things weren't all peachy around the world, but in the furniture industry they'd never been better. The Danish designers were pushing out icon after icon, the Eameses were working the World's Fair in New York, and the public was really coming around to the design community's movement towards simpler forms and graceful lines.
We're inspired by Mid-Century design. We love its ethos, appreciate its contribution to our lives, and want to continue bringing forward designs that make life beautifully simple. Smart designs - the kind that inspire you in turn. Just as 1964 contained the essence of Mid-Century Modern's creative push, we'd like to think that our 1964 Sofa showcases the essential Smart Furniture product.
What's To Like:
The 1964 Sofa's wide, Danish Modern-style base is made even nicer by the gorgeous walnut-stained Maple from which it's made. And when you sit on the sofa, you get both comfort and support - no one likes to sink into a couch so far that it's hard to get up. At the same time, no one wants a hard sofa. The 1964 Sofa delivers good comfort in the middle of the "cushy" scale.
What's Not to Like:
We'd like to withhold judgment on that since the sofa's our very own model - but we're better than that. If we had to change one thing it would be the location of the pillow crack. As a sofa with true 3-seat size, it's kinda awkward to have the crack right in the middle. Don't know where else we'd put it, though ...
The Bottom Line:
We want the 1964 Sofa in our own homes. It's really nice to be able to offer furniture that we'd buy ourselves - and the 1964 Sofa really delivers. It's beautiful, comfortable, and well-made.
