Joaquim Tenreiro, Living room set
Joaquim Tenreiro (1906-1992)
Living room set
Living room set composed by a four-seat sofa and two armchairs. All the pieces with wood feet are upholstered with a white fabric. The proportions as the curved and enveloping lines of the back make this set especially elegant. This model has the characteristic of having overflowing armrests which offer a graceful profile and lighten the volume. With lines very architecturals, this model appears in the 1960s. Joaquin Tenreiro designed differents variants of this model for his privates clients. We know a version with high backrest of this model as well as one with tubular feet.
