“Samsas” Sofa by Carl Malmsten
A classic three-seater sofa designed by Carl Malmsten. “Samsas” can be roughly translated from Swedish as “togetherness,” and the?gracious, curvilinear design expresses just that. The sofa has been completely restored and upholstered in a gorgeous Zak Fox cotton/jute fabric called “Poncho.” Seen in situ with the Samsas armchair, recovered in “Chimi.” We find Zak’s newest woven textiles to be a perfect match for the timeless Scandinavian designs that we most adore.

Designed in 1923, this example of the Malmsten “Samsas” sofa was produced circa 1960 by O.H. Sjogren. Labeled.
