Valla Rito Sofa with Metal Frame in Azure Blue Upholstery
Valla Rito, sofa, fabric, metal and brass. Italy, 1950s.
This modern sofa, designed by Valla Rito, features a metal frame that holds the seat in its place. The legs are tall and slender and are made of brass on the bottom half and black metal on the top. The frame is formed exactly as the shapes of the cushions, which can be removed. The cushions are thick, full and recently upholstered in a blue fabric. The blue contrasts very well with the black lacquered frame.
The cushions are recently reupholstered and are in good condition. The frame shows some signs of age and use, with some scratches in the lacquer.
